Fine Gael Cork South West TD, Noel Harrington, has strongly welcomed the decision by the EU Commission to bring forward the awarding of the Single Farm Payment (SFP), following representations made to the EU Commission by the Minister for Agriculture, Simon Coveney.
Farmers will now be able to draw down 50% of their SFP from 16th October instead of having to wait until December as previously intended.
