Although MPs and peers make public their financial interests, they are not required explicitly to declare if they are financially involved in a farm or agricultural enterprise which receives CAP payments, nor how much is received. Some of the politicians declined to say if they drew any sort of income from the farm. Others said that, like many other farmers, they did not make a profit and the subsidy enabled them to keep the farm afloat and people in work.
