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.
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.
