Written answers (Question to Agriculture)

The person named was approved into the GLAS 1 scheme with a contract commencement date of 1 October 2015 and received payments for scheme years 2015 - 2017 and the 2018 Advance payment.

In this case, the application has not yet passed the pre-payment validation checks for the 2018 balance due to issues with the associated BPS application. Once this issue is resolved and the application clears all validations, the 2018 balance payment will be processed and the case will move forward for processing of the 2019 claim. 

GLAS payments continue to issue on a weekly basis.
