Written answers (Question to Agriculture)

In accordance with the EU regulatory requirements, GLAS balancing payments can only commence when the Member State has verified that all on-farm inspections required have been carried out.

GLAS advance payments at the rate of 85% of the full annual payment commenced on 4 November 2019 and continue to issue on a weekly basis as cases clear all validation checks. It is currently anticipated that GLAS balancing payments at the rate of 15% will commence before the end of May 2020.
