NAO slams government over agricultural payments botch-up

Public sector watchdog, the
National Audit Office, has accused
the government of costing UK farmers £22.5m due to mistakes made with its
agricultural payments system.

In its report on the Rural Payments
Agency
, the NAO found the costs were made in additional interest and
arrangement fees on loans.

In addition the NAO found a catalogue of management errors, which meant
thousands of farmers were left waiting for payments.

A spokesperson for the Department for
Environment, Food and Rural Affairs
said the department was fully aware of
the problems and is committed to resolving them, the BBC reported
