Written answers (Question to Agriculture)

The person named was approved into GLAS 3 with a contract commencement date of 1 January 2017 and has received payment in respect of scheme year 2017.

An issue arose in relation to a parcel claimed as Low Input Permanent Pasture which requires further checking. This issue has delayed processing of the 2018 Advance payment.   

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

GLAS payments continue to issue on a weekly basis.
