IFA Deputy President Tim O’Leary has called on Minister Coveney to immediately make payments to the remaining farmers who are due their Basic Payment. He said that the Minister’s recent comments that these remaining payments will only be sorted out over a two-to-three week period will be of concern to farmers experiencing extreme financial difficulties as a result of delays.
Ahead of the 70% advance payout of the Basic Payment and the Greening payment next week, IFA Deputy President Tim O’Leary has said all farmers must be paid on time and in full. “This is vitally important given the tight cashflow on farms due to income difficulties this year”.
