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 payment in respect of scheme years 2015, 2016 and the 2017 advance.

The 2017 balance payment has been delayed as the Commonage Management Plan has not yet been submitted as required under the scheme. An appeal to the Commonage Implementation Committee has been submitted in respect of one of the commonages on the application. The position is that the Committee has written to the Commonage Advisor in question and a reply is awaited.
