Grant funding under the Rural Development Plan for England are likely to be secure because they cannot be altered by national governments. But the deficit reduction programme takes precedence over any other measures. Badger control is mentioned in the coalition document but this may not mean a cull and nothing is likely to happen soon. Similarly there is a promise of a free vote on hunting but there is no mention about what might happen afterwards. There may be implications for RDAs and even the RPA in a promised Bill to abolish, merge or transfer quangos back to departments.
