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 all payments in respect of scheme years 2016 and 2017.

This application was rejected from the scheme due to non-compliance with the Rare Breed action as the individual was not a member of the relevant society in 2017 as required under the terms and conditions of GLAS. The person named requested a review of the decision and was informed by letter of 21 January 2019 that the review was unsuccessful. This letter also advised the person named of the option of appealing this decision to the Agriculture Appeals Office.
