Written answers (Question to Agriculture)

The person named was approved into GLAS 3 with a contract commencement date of 1 January 2017 and has received all payments in respect of scheme years 2017 - 2019.

In this case, an issue arose in relation to a land parcel claimed for the Farmland Habitat Private Natura action which no longer meets the criteria for eligibility. This parcel has now been withdrawn from the GLAS contract and the 2020 Advance payment will be processed shortly for the remaining actions.

The person named has been informed in writing of the position as outlined above.
