Written answers (Question to Agriculture)

I wish to inform the Deputy that the Agriculture Appeals Office operates independently of my Department.

I have been advised, however, that the records of the Agriculture Appeals Office indicate that a GLAS appeal has been received from the person named.

I am also advised that the Agriculture Appeals Office has recently been in contact with the person named and has agreed to defer the oral hearing on this appeal.
