Written answers (Question to Agriculture)

The applicant 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.

An issue arose in relation to a cross compliance penalty which has delayed the processing of the 2018 payment. The Department is working to resolve the issue and expects the payment to issue shortly. Once this case clears all the required validations, the 2018 advance payment will be made followed by the balancing payment. GLAS payments are continuing to issue on a weekly basis.
