The Newry & Armagh Sinn Féin MLA explained, “The Agriculture Minister Michelle O’Neill yesterday announced that 91.3% of single farm payments will be in the bank this week. “This amounts to a stimulus to the economy of over £223 million and gives the vast majority of farmers an injection of cash in order to manage their farms. “This week 27,000 farmers will receive their single farm payment which is a great achievement and it is obvious that the minister will meet her target of 93% of farmers paid by the end of December.” “I would appeal to all farmers to work with the department on if possible at all moving to online applications which would allow the payments to be paid. Boylan added, “I would also appeal to those farmers who have yet to receive their payments to be patient and work with the department in order to receive their payments as soon as possible.”
