Written answers (Question to Agriculture)

The position in relation to AEOS, ANC and GLAS payments for the person named is as follows:

AEOS: The person named completed their AEOS contact on 31 December 2015. The position in relation to AEOS payments for the 2015 scheme year is currently being examined. The applicant will be contacted directly if any balance is due.

ANC: Payments in respect of the person named are under review and my Department will contact the applicant when the review is complete.

GLAS: The person named was approved into GLAS 2 with a contract commencement date of 1 January 2016 and was paid for the 2016 and 2017 scheme years. An issue arose in relation to an increase to the eligible areas for some commonage claims which delayed processing of the 2018 scheme year payment. This issue is being investigated and the 2018 GLAS payment will be processed once the issue has been resolved. Any balancing payments due in relation to commonage claims for the 2016 and 2017 scheme years will be processed in due course.
