IFA Rural Development Chairman calls for Minister to proceed with GLAS Payments and end the ongoing saga once and for all.

The IFA’s Rural Development chairman, Joe Brady, has today called for action from Minister Creed with regards GLAS payments still due to farmers. He insisted that all farmers due said payment are entitled to have payments made providing that Minister Creed is prepared to pay on measures of the plan previously signed off on.

Mr. Brady said that many cases are still outstanding and a substantial part of them plans are approved bar technical and administrative issues. Mr. brady Called on Minister Creed to go ahead and proceed with payments in cases such as these.

He added that up to 2,200 farmers have yet to receive any payment and said he hopes that last year’s difficulties are dead and buried by the time payments are due to all 50,000 farmers again.

Mr. Brady said that there are over 2,500 farmers that have finally received their overdue delayed 85% advance payments under GLAS 1 and 2. He says that these farmers were mostly in hen harrier and other designated area sites.

He continued by highlighting the need for all further payments (15%) be made without further delay adding that this 15% is worth a total of €25m to farmers.

Mr. Brady then reminded any farmer who was asked by the department to respond to a query of some sort, to respond quickly to ensure the earlier payments of overdue monies.

The IFA’s President, Joe Healy, will meet with the Minister for Agriculture Michael Creed next Wednesday to press for the conclusion of the GLAS saga and attempt to help solve the problems holding up TAMS payments for up to 500 farmers.
