Written answers (Question to Agriculture)

Following a death in the family concerned, it was necessary that the legal processes be completed and the resultant amendments made to my Department’s records, on foot of legal documentation submitted. These processes have been completed and payments under both the Single Payment Scheme and the Disadvantaged Areas Scheme have issued respectively in December 2012 and January 2013 to the legal representatives. The payments issued to the bank account nominated to my Department.
