10,000 Farmers Have Not Received Glas Payments Due Last Month

Almost a third of farmers have not received the Glas payments that were due last month.

That’s according to Mayo Sinn Fein Senator Rose Conway Walsh.

She told Midwest News today that many of these 10,000 farmers have incurred significant costs in compliance with the scheme through a combination of planner fees and actions to comply, and farmers are significantly out of pocket as a result of the delays.

She is calling on the Minister for Agriculture Michael Creed to immediately address the problem that is causing the delay – whether its an issue of staff shortages or computer difficulties.
