The Irish Natura & Hill Farmers Association has welcomed the announcement by Minister Creed to introduce interim measures which will facilitate the pay out of GLAS monies to all GLAS 1 and 2 participants including commonage famers.

The IHNFA CAP Chair Colm O’Donnell says the ongoing dialogue with the Department of Agriculture Officials and a meeting with Minister Creed on Monday were significant factors in the announcement.

The interim arrangements will allow for the inclusion of GLAS 3 participants which Mr O’Donnell says is something the IHNFA called for last week and will be vital when planners come to finalising these plans.

However Mr O’Donnell says the interim measures are just that and the INHFA still have many concerns regarding what responsibilities farmers are taking on under these plans.
