E-CAP forms are future

SUBMITTING CAP claim forms by e-mail should result in quicker payment, MAFF north-east regional director Richard Mascall told delegates at an internet conference organised by farmers weekly and the Yorkshire Agricultural Society in Harrogate.

He said that although MAFF had no legal powers to force farmers to use e-mail to submit claim forms, its aim was to receive all CAP submissions online by the end of December 2002. &#42
