Charlie McConalogue

Ceist:

227. Deputy Charlie McConalogue asked the Minister for Agriculture, Food and the Marine when a GLAS 2016 payment will issue to a person (details supplied); the reason for the delay in rectifying the issue with regard to commonages; and if he will make a statement on the matter. [4996/18]

The person named was approved into GLAS 1 with a contract commencement date of 1 October 2015 and has received the payment in respect of the 2015 scheme year.

The Department is aware of an issue with this case that has delayed the 2016 and 2017 payments. This case is prioritised for payment and I expect will be sorted in the very near future. GLAS payments are continuing to issue on a weekly basis.
