The editor-in-chief of the Eurosceptic Daily Mail benefited from at least £88,000 in subsidies from the European Union for his country houses in Sussex and the Scottish highlands in 2014.
Payments from the EU totalling £59,534.85 were made in 2014 for Langwell estate, a 20,000-acre stretch of moorland near Ullapool in the Scottish Highlands owned by Paul Dacre. A further £29,118.76 was paid to a P Dacre in respect of a home in Wadhurst, Sussex during the year.
The payments were made under the common agricultural policy, one of many EU institutions regularly attacked in the pages of the tabloid.
