As stated in my answer to Parliamentary Question No. 123 of 24 May 2000, following processing of the 1999 area aid application of the person named, an overlap with land claimed by another herdowner was determined. The files of both the herdowners concerned were sent for ground inspections. A number of problems were identified during this inspection which have taken some considerable time to resolve. However the final results of this inspection will be available next week and the area aid application will then be fully processed without delay. No payments due can issue until the application has been fully processed. There is no record of any applications having been submitted by the person named under any of the headage or premium schemes in 1999 or indeed 2000.
