Written answers (Question to Agriculture)

While payments under the 2013 Grassland Sheep Scheme commenced issuing, on target, on 12 December 2013, payment has not yet issued to the person named, as the land parcels declared by the person named were under review, as part of the ongoing LPIS Review. The review of those parcels declared by the person named having recently been concluded, payment under the Grassland Sheep Scheme will issue shortly, directly to the nominated bank account of the person named.
