Department of Agriculture, Food and the Marine
464. To ask the Minister for Agriculture, Food and the Marine the steps he will take to resolve the information technology issues with the processing of GLAS applications in order that a person (details supplied) can receive a 2018 payment; and if he will make a statement on the matter. [9520/19]
The person named was approved into GLAS 3 with a contract commencement date of 1 January 2017 and has received all payments including GLAS+ in respect of scheme year 2017.
In relation to the 2018 Advance payment, I understand that the original parcel claimed was split into two parcels, one of which contains a building and is therefore ineligible for GLAS. This must be removed and is currently being processed to exclude the ineligible area.
Once the case clears validations the 2018 advance payment will be made. GLAS payments are issuing on a weekly basis.
