As of 18 July 2007, 15 claimants have not received a payment for the 2005 single payment scheme (SPS).

Under the SPS for 2006 107,279 customers have received either a full or partial payment. This represents 98.4 per cent. of the estimated total claimant population of 109,000.

We are not at this stage in a position to advise when the detailed analysis of payments made under SPS will be made available.
