RPA's focus must remain on ensuring outstanding payments are made as soon as possible

03 February 2016

CLA President Ross Murray said: “This is a very difficult time for those still waiting for their payment, and it is crucial that the RPA’s focus remains on ensuring that all outstanding payments are made as soon as possible.

“Farms can’t plan without clear and reliable information about the timeframe in which they will be paid, and it was disappointing that a number of ‘inspection’ emails were sent in error causing unnecessary confusion in the last week. We are reassured that the RPA is addressing this confusion as a matter of urgency.

“We know that payments are continuing to arrive with our members on a daily basis, and we will continue to do all we can to help ensure that all remaining applications are processed and payments are made as swiftly as possible.”
