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 payments in respect of 2015, 2016 and 2017.

An issue arose in relation to a validation check which has delayed the processing of this 2018 Advance payment. Department officials are actively working to resolve this issue.

Once this application clears the pre-payment validations, the outstanding 2018 payments will be processed.
