With this it will be convenient to discuss amendment 108, in clause 7, page 6, line 16, at end insert—

“(8A) Regulations under this section must set out explicit timescales for the payment of the direct payments or delinked payments that are due to entitled persons.”.

This amendment would ensure that those entitled to payments received those payments within guaranteed timescales to help ensure certainty of cash flow.
