Written Answers. - Grant Payment.

542.

asked the Minister for Agriculture if he will expedite payment of beef scheme and calf premiums for 1983-84 and 1984-85 for a person (details supplied) in County Roscommon.

The person named will be paid calf premium for 1983 and 1984 as soon as the batches which include his payments are processed. He has been asked to produce a statement from the Revenue Commissioners that he has no off-farm income that would disqualify him from the beef cow scheme in the disadvantaged areas and the suckler cow premium scheme and his eligibility under these schemes will be considered when he does so.
