Written answers (Question to Agriculture)

The person named was approved into GLAS 1 with a contract commencement date of 1 January 2016 and payments were processed for scheme years 2016 and 2017.

The application was initially rejected based on the findings of an on farm inspection. However, a review of the case led to a decision to reinstate the application with a penalty. The Department is currently working to resolve the outstanding validation issues so that payments due can be processed as soon as possible.
