Written answers (Question to Agriculture)

The person named was approved into GLAS 1 with a contract commencement date of 1 October 2015 and received all payments in respect of scheme years 2015 to 2018 as well as the 2019 advance payment.

The position is that there is no record of an application from the person named to withdraw from GLAS 1 under the provisions of force majeure. It is open to the person named to write directly to the GLAS Section in Johnstown Castle Wexford outlining their request to withdraw under section 20 of the terms and conditions of the scheme providing the full details and supporting documentation for their case.
