Written answers (Question to Agriculture)

The person named was approved into GLAS 2 with a contract commencement date of 1 January 2016 and has received payments in respect of 2016, 2017 and the 2018 Advance. This participant is claiming for the Hen Harrier action under GLAS.

GLAS officials are currently working to complete updates to the GLAS contract. Once the required updates are finalised and this application clears the pre-payment validations, the 2018 balancing payment will be processed. GLAS payments are continuing to issue weekly.
