The person named included a land parcel on his 2002 area aid application which overlapped with a land parcel on another herd owner's application. Both parties have been written to in order to clarify the matter and replies are awaited.
Until this matter is resolved an area aid application of the person named cannot be processed and no area related payments can issue.
He has 333 animals eligible under the 2002 slaughter premium scheme and 180 of these animals are eligible under the national envelope top-up. Advance payment will issue under these two schemes as soon as the inspection papers are finalised.
The person named also lodged eight applications in respect of the EU special beef premium 2002 for a total of 111 animals. The herd was selected for producer inspection which was carried out in late September. Payment in relation to these applications will be made, as soon as possible, on completion of all appropriate checks.
