ABSTRACT
The article reports on the 3-year extension of the Hill Farm Allowances and the removal of the allowance for farmers in the disadvantaged areas in Great Britain. Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs minister Jeff Rooker stresses that the extension would benefit farmers in severely disadvantaged areas. Rooker added that the allowance removal of the concerned farmers would not create much impact. The amount rendered from the allowance removal will be added to the overall rural development fund.
