They're also big on wanting RT as the ONLY assurance method.

I recon someone would sabotage the process.

"I'm sorry to inform you that on this occasion your application was unsuccessful".
Surely not? DEFRA, a government body who would have to release it's emails to foi requests? I can't see why they or any organisation who are committed to openness and transparency, who have a remit to encourage cooperation and access to markets while increasing efficiency would dream of sabotaging the process. I mean, it's not like they are all chatting to each other behind closed doors!

Must be worth a feasibility study. Especially if it involved a week studying how they do it in say Brazil, or Ukraine....or the Bahamas.

Would need at least 10 of us to visit some breweries and distilleries to gauge views of the processors.

Would it be an idea to have 4 sticky threads each relating to the four geographical countries of the UK?

Pointless me being in Wales trawling through English stuff etc.
Agreed ..... as an Englishman it pains me to see the size of the grants our Welsh neighbours get compared to our paltry offerings in England 😊😊😊....... and it's supposed to be a level playing field !! 🤔🤔😊😊

The SME loan/cashback scheme in Scotland is good.

Does the above fill the right criteria for FETF46 GPS light bar? It claims that it has to link to a smart phone to create and store field boundaries!!
Thanks
It says "smart phone or tablet". But it is for a Light Bar, which the Vantage offering does not appear to be. I have no idea how flexible the RPA would be, but I suspect not a lot !

A quick email to DEFRA, with a link to the item you are enquiring about is all it takes....

They responded very quickly when I asked about the FJD systems as an import.

Yes it is eligible, and Yes, it is OK to import a kit if that is your preferred method.

It was eligible this time or last time? Wording seems to have changed.
