Written answers (Question to Agriculture)

A 2019 Basic Payment Scheme application was received is respect of the person named on 15 May 2019 and payment due on foot of this application issued recently. 

In relation to the Greening Payment, a supplementary payment will issue in the coming days.

The person named was approved into the GLAS 1 scheme and has been paid for scheme years 2016-2018. However, the application has not yet passed all pre-payment validation checks for the 2019 GLAS advance payment due to issues with the associated BPS application which have now been resolved. The GLAS payment will be processed when all required validations have been completed. GLAS payments continue to be processed on a weekly basis.
