68% #BPS2016 claimants paid

£822 million has been paid to 68 per cent of eligible claimants – which the RPA says cover a range of claim types and sizes including young farmer, those inspected and farmers with common land.

 

NFU vice-president Guy Smith said: “68 per cent of claimants paid is encouraging and it shows the RPA is on track to meet its 90 per cent target by the end of December.

 

“However, only 50 per cent of the money has been paid out, so 32 per cent of claimants are waiting for 50 per cent of the money.

 

“My main concern is for those who will still be unpaid in the new year, so I want to renew our call for those identified not to be paid by the end of December to receive a bridging payment.”
