The applicant named was approved into GLAS 2 with a contract commencement date of 1 January 2016 and has received all payments in respect of scheme years 2016 and 2017.

My officials are working to resolve an issue relating to a cross-compliance penalty which has delayed the processing of the 2018 payments. Once this application clears the pre-payment validations, the 2018 GLAS payments will be processed. GLAS payments are continuing to issue on a weekly basis.
