As at the end of March 2016, in addition to claims which the Rural Payments Agency cannot pay due to legal reasons such as probate, there were 13,531 English claimants still awaiting a BPS Payment. Of these 54 applicants were in Merseyside and 25 in St Helens North. The RPA does not hold the information for the UK as payments in Scotland and Wales are made by their respective governments.
