Written answers (Question to Arts)

Under the cessation of turf cutting compensation scheme, applicants will enter into a legal agreement with me, as Minister for Arts, Heritage and the Gaeltacht. A provision has been included in the legal agreement which provides that the agreement is assignable on the death of the applicant by way of will or rules on intestacy.
