Alert me about debates like this
To ask the Secretary of State for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs how many and what percentage of single farm payments have been made; how many payments have not been made because of invalid returns; and how many payments have yet to be made.
120,367 applications were received for the single payment scheme. By the end of 17 March 2006, 10,116 (8.43 per cent.) claims had been paid.
The claims still to be made will include a number of invalid returns. The Rural Payments Agency is unable at this stage to quantify the number.
