Written answers (Question to Agriculture)

The processing of the 2012 Single Payment Scheme application for the person named has recently been finalised by my Department with payment due to issue shortly in respect of Single Payment Scheme, Disadvantaged Areas Scheme and REPS. Payments under the 2012 Grassland Sheep Scheme are in respect of breeding ewes as declared on the December 2011 sheep census, as the person named declared no breeding ewes on their census, therefore, no payment is due to the applicant under this scheme.
