Farmers can't milk dairy fund

There will be no compensation for Northern Ireland's farmers in response to a new dairy fund set up in England.

Chief Secretary to the Treasury, Danny Alexander, told the SDLP's Margaret Ritchie (below) there would not be Barnett consequentials from the fund, meaning the devolved nations will not be given their own share.

This is because the cash has been found from existing resources within the Government.
