Written answers (Question to Agriculture)

The person named commenced their AEOS 2 contract on 1 September 2011. Payment issued for the 2011-2015 Scheme years.

Under the EU Regulations governing this Scheme and all other area-based payment schemes, a full check, including cross-checks with the Land Parcel Identification System must take place before payment can issue. As all AEOS II participants will be receiving their final payments under the scheme, re-checks on payments made for all scheme years must be completed before final payment can be processed. Cases are being worked through on an ongoing basis and all cases cleared for payment are paid on a weekly basis.
