Wales' Minister for Natural Resources and Food will set out plans for payments to farmers today during a visit to the Royal Welsh show. Among plans are the implementation of a 100% cap on payments over €300,000 from the Common Agricultural Policy.

Alun Davies says, 'Broadly speaking the CAP deal reached in Europe is good for Wales and reflects my key negotiating priorities. Now I have to start making decisions on how the system will operate in Wales and ensure that direct payments are used to best effect'
