Written answers (Question to Agriculture)

Under 2012 Disadvantaged Areas Scheme, the holdings of eligible applicants were required to have met a minimum stocking density of 0.15 livestock units for a retention period of six consecutive months, in addition to maintaining an annual average of 0.15 livestock units calculated over the twelve months of the scheme year.

As my Department has not, to date, received any evidence of livestock on the holding concerned, no payment is due.
