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 all payments in respect of scheme years 2015 and 2016 and the 2017 advance.

The 2017 balance payment was delayed due to an issue relating to the Low Input Permanent Pasture claim. Department officials are actively working to resolve this issue. Once the 2017 balance payment is made the case will move forward for processing of the 2018 claim. GLAS payments issue on a weekly basis.
