Written answers (Question to Agriculture)

The person named commenced REPS 4 in November 2008 and received payments for the first four years of their contract.

REPS 4 is a measure under the current 2007-13 Rural Development Programme and is subject to EU Regulations which require detailed administrative checks on all applications to be completed before any payments can issue. This process has now been completed in this case and I expect payment to issue shortly.
