Written answers (Question to Agriculture)

No payments have been made as yet under the Transport Fodder Scheme as participating Co-ops, Marts, etc. are in the process of assembling their documentation for submission to my Department. With regard to the levels of Emergency Assistance that has been provided to farmers, some €170,000 has been paid to approx. 475 farmers.
