Written answers (Question to Arts)

The individual referred to in the Deputy’s Question has applied for compensation under the cessation of turf cutting compensation scheme, administered by my Department.

I am advised that a payment has been made to the applicant in respect of 2011. However, issues in relation to legal title over the land in question are being investigated by my Department.

My Department expects to be in contact with the applicant shortly in relation to his application.
