Written answers (Question to Minister for Agriculture and Food)

Allocations of milk quota from the national reserve are granted on the basis of recommendations from the milk quota appeals tribunal. The tribunal is a body established to consider and advise on applications for additional quota from individual producers who have suffered severe hardship in the context of the milk quota system.

The tribunal considered an application for additional quota from the person in question at its meeting on 8 December 2003 and an allocation was recommended. The person named was notified of the outcome of his application.
