Written answers (Question to Agriculture)

Processing of the payment for this GLAS 3 application commenced immediately following the receipt of the appeal decision from the Agriculture Appeals Office.

To give effect to this decision, the GLAS contract requires amendment as a Low Input Permanent Pasture (LIPP) action was declared by the applicant on the GLAS application as Traditional Hay Meadow. Department officials are working to complete the required amendment.

Once this issue is resolved and the application clears pre-payment validations, the GLAS payments will be processed. GLAS payments continue to issue weekly.
