Written answers (Question to Agriculture)

The person named is a member of a Farm Partnership. In relation to the Basic Payment Scheme (BPS) and Areas of Natural Constraints (ANC) Scheme, an application for participation in these schemes was received from the Farm Partnership on the 10th of May 2019.

Advance and balancing payments have issued to the Partnership under the 2019 BPS. Advance payment has also issued to the Partnership under the 2019 ANC Scheme. The balancing payment under this scheme is currently being processed and will issue to the Partnership shortly.

According to records held by my Department, there is no GLAS application associated with the named individual on file.
