Hi Mary, I read on Warmwell:
"The NAO, which acts as Parliament's financial watchdog, said that although there were some recent signs of improvement at Defra, too many mistakes were still being made..."A friend of mine with a very small acreage, spent some effort & time filling in the forms, which were returned in the return envelopes supplied, on 2 separate days. When he received no confirmation of receipt in the form of something else to fill in (claim form?) he rang them...
They have no record of having received ANYTHING from him.
He feels it is somewhat of a coincidence that BOTH reply paid envelopes went astray!
Has anyone else had the same problem to your knowledge? My friend is now ineligible for payments I gather. He is less worried about the money, than the time he wasted filling in the ****** forms!
