As of 3 July 86,760 (99.6%) of farmers have received a payment on their 2015 BPS claim. The Rural Payments Agency continues to focus on making top up payments, to those farmers who have already received a bridging payment, including those with common land on their claim.

In addition the Rural Payments Agency will be making additional payments due as a result of the Minchinhampton and Rodborough Judicial Review.
