Written answers (Question to Agriculture)

The person named was approved into GLAS 1 with a contract commencement date of 1 October 2015 and has received full payments in respect of the 2015 and 2016 scheme years.

The Department is aware of an issue with this case that resulted in the 2017 advance payment not being made. A solution has been identified and it is expected that the payment will issue shortly. GLAS 2017 advance payments continue to issue on a weekly basis.
