Shetland MSP Tavish Scott has issued a call to all crofters who are still waiting for their Basic Payment to contact the Lerwick RPID area office and his own constituency office following the commitment made by the new Rural Economy Secretary to resolve the ongoing problems with the new CAP system.
Commenting, Tavish Scott said:
“Too many crofters are still waiting for the full payment they are entitled to. While I welcome the new Cabinet Secretary’s claim that sorting out the shambles of CAP payments is his top priority, this needs to translate into action.
“As well as contacting the Lerwick Area Office on 0300 244 9599, those still waiting for payments can also contact my constituency office on 01595 690044 and I will take their cases up with the Cabinet Secretary directly.”
