McMullan welcomes guidelines for Young Farmers' Payments
Sinn Féin MLA Oliver McMullan has welcomed the publication of guidelines for applications for Young Farmers' Payments.
The East Antrim MLA said;
"The Young Farmers' Payment Guidance booklet includes information on who is eligible for these payments and information on how to apply.
"In the past there was some confusion and concerns over the Young Farmers' Payment scheme. So I congratulate my colleague and agriculture minister Michelle O'Neill for publishing this booklet to clarify the situation.
"These guidelines clear up exactly who is eligible for top-up payments and what evidence is required to support the applications.
"This information is timely as it comes well in advance of the application process.
"More than €6 million is available for Young Farmers and it is vital that it is accessible to encourage young farmers in North."
