To ask the Scottish Government for what reason it made changes to the mapping process for single farm payments applications so close to the deadline for submitting them.
Answered by: Fergus Ewing 28 May 2019
There has been no change to the mapping process/arrangements for applicants submitting Single Applications Forms (SAF) in 2019 for land based support including Basic Payment Scheme (BPS) and Less Favoured Area Support Scheme (LFASS). Map changes requested by customers as priority or as a consequence of land inspections have been issued to aid timeous and accurate submission of SAF’s.
