Written answers (Question to Agriculture)

The person named was approved into GLAS 1 and has received payments for scheme years 2015, 2016 and 2017.

An issue arose in relation to the Low Input Permanent Pasture (LIPP) action which has delayed the processing of the 2018 payment. The Department is actively working to resolve this issue. Once this case clears all the required validations, the 2018 advance payment will be made followed by the 2018 balancing payment. GLAS payments are continuing to issue on a weekly basis.
