The Rural Payments Agency said it was on track to pay 90 per cent of payments by the end of December.

 

Support worth more than £853 million was paid to 55,179 claimants.

 

RPA chief executive, Paul Caldwell, said the agency had worked hard to make ’significant progress compared with last year’s performance and remains ’focused on getting remaining payments into bank accounts as soon as possible’.
