As the data demonstrate, the vast majority of applicants have been paid. Those, who have not as yet been paid, have been informed by my Department of the case-specific reason(s), relating to compliance with the terms and conditions of the Scheme, as to why payment has not issued. Regular payment runs are carried out by my Department to ensure that, as outstanding issues are resolved, payments are issued as quickly as possible.
