Written answers (Question to Agriculture)

The person named is one of a number of applicants under the 2012 Disadvantaged Areas Scheme, whose cases are impacted by the requirement to have achieved a minimum stocking density of 0.3 livestock units per forage hectare on their holding in 2011 and who applied for and initially were refused derogation in this regard.

However, following further recent contact and clarification, the holding concerned has been confirmed as satisfying this requirement. Accordingly, processing of the file has recently been completed, with payment due to issue shortly, directly to the nominated bank account.
