It probably relates to trees. The Minister can take it that this question has been raised by me with him. He might provide further clarification on that issue. Does he agree that it is vital that all outstanding cases are resolved? I hear what he is saying about outstanding documentation which obviously has to be submitted, but we need to finalise this issue because farmers are waiting for their cheques which are badly needed.

Once there is clearance it is important that the cheque issues within a week. If a PAYE worker was left waiting for his or her wages for months on end we would hear about it. It is the same for farmers; they need the money.
