Department of Agriculture, Food and the Marine
170. To ask the Minister for Agriculture, Food and the Marine the reason a number of GLAS payments (details supplied) are being held up, with his officials citing problems with information technology systems as the reason behind the delays; if the system is adequate; when payments will be issued; and if he will make a statement on the matter. [24677/19]
The person named was approved into GLAS 2 and has received payments for scheme years 2016, 2017 and 2018.
Following an inspection, the Planting a Grove of Native Trees action was found to be ineligible on the application. However, this decision was subsequently the subject of a successful review. Department officials are currently working to reinstate the action and the payment for this action will be processed once this is complete.
GLAS payments continue to issue on a weekly basis.
