Dear Ms Barbiroglio,  
Regarding your questions with regards to promotion of agricultural products the answers 
are as follows:  
1)  How  much  money  the  UK  government  has  sent  annually  to  the  European  Union  to 
fund research. I would like a breakdown of the data for the last 10 years. 
Not applicable, promotion of agricultural products does not concern research. 
2) The amount of money the UK government has been providing to the European Union 
for the Promotion of agricultural products since this programme begun. 
Not applicable. 
3)  The  amount  of  money  the  UK  institutions  have  been  receiving  from  the  European 
Union through the Promotion of agricultural products. 
Please note that the beneficiaries of the promotion of agricultural products policy are not 
UK  institutions  but  agricultural  organisations.  The  total  amount  of  support  allocated  to 
these organisations, based in the UK, in the past 10 years is 18,382,590.79 EUR.
