The Rural Payments Agency says that it has started making single farm payments in England.
The agency has revealed that the first payments went into bank accounts on Monday and more are going in on Wednesday (22 Feb).
A spokesman said although this represented the delivery of the promise to start making payments in Feb 2006, it was just the start.
“Our staff are working flat out to get the statements and payments out there and resolve outstanding queries on applications where there are inconsistencies and questions remaining and it has not yet been possible to fully validate a claim.”
