The article reports that farming unions in Wales are furious that farmers will not get their full Tir Mynydd support payments until at least the end of March 2007. According to some civil servants, only 70% of the 2007 payment would be made until validation checks had been made on the farms of 5% of the 10,500 applicants. Union member Rhian Nowell-Phillips stressed that the move will have an impact on the cash flows of farm businesses.
