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.

Department officials are actively working to amend the GLAS contract in relation to a Low Input Permanent Pasture action which was declared as Traditional Hay Meadow on the GLAS application.

Once the required amendment is completed and the application clears the pre-payment validations, the GLAS payment will be issued.
