Written answers (Question to Agriculture)

As the person named holds no Single Payment entitlements, no payment is due under this Scheme.

As regards the 2012 Disadvantaged Areas Scheme, the person named is one of a number of applicants whose cases were impacted by the requirement to have achieved a minimum stocking density on their holding in 2011 of 0.3 livestock units per forage hectare and who applied for and were refused derogation in this regard. However, a subsequent appeal was received, which is currently under consideration; once this review is finalised, the person named will be notified in writing of the outcome.
