Written answers (Question to Minister for Agriculture, Fisheries and Food)

Under the 2010 Grassland Sheep Scheme, farmers were required to:

maintain ewes;

complete the Sheep Census return by 9 April 2010; and

submit the SPS application form by the closing date of 17th May 2010.

While an application under the 2010 Single Payment Scheme and other area-based schemes was received from the person named on 6 May 2010, following validation, it was found that the person named had not submitted the Sheep Census Return by the closing date, as required. Therefore, no payment is due under the Grassland Sheep Scheme to the person named.
