Written answers (Question to Agriculture)

The person named was approved into GLAS 2 with a contract commencement date of 1 January 2016 and has received the 85% advance payment in respect of the 2016 scheme year.

There is an issue with this case due to the overdeclaration by the applicant of the LIPP action that resulted in the 2016 balancing payment and the 2017 advance payment being held. The case will be processed shortly. The 2016 balance payment will issue initially to be followed by the 2017 advance payment. GLAS payments continue to issue on a weekly basis.
