No such thing as grandfather rights

Sorry, but as far as I am aware - I never said Grandfather rights do exist did I?

I did however, refer to the course he had linked to, as I can recall being given the basics of it when I went for my PA's and there was some mention of age etc that was linked to people holding onto the Grandfather rights ethos etc.

puzzled by your reply there is no licence to buy only to use
I've watch a small number of 'older' farmers spraying and know that there is no way on earth they have any inkling of the rules that are required for safe application of chems. I know it is not rocket science but FFS when it's gusting F5 on the Beaufort scale you really shouldn't be out in your IH or Bateman at all!!!! Shame on them for their misuse. Obtaining PA's is a pleasant social excersise not circumcisiono_O so what's the problem with at least trying to be a better applicator?;)

I’ve watched mostly contractors or big farms that need to ‘ get on ‘, spraying in less than ideal conditions .

A man has pleaded guilty at Newtownards Magistrates’ Court to waste offences relating to a bonfire next to the electrical sub-station on the Circular Road in Newtownards, Co. Down.

Gareth Gill (51) of Abbot’s Walk, Newtownards pleaded guilty to two charges under the Waste and Contaminated Land (Northern Ireland) Order 1997, for which he was fined £150 each and ordered to pay a £15 offender’s levy

On June 25, 2018, PSNI officers went to Gill’s yard, where they found a large amount of waste consisting of scrap wood, pallets, carpet and underlay.
