Written answers (Question to Agriculture)

A review of the land parcels declared by the person named under the 2013 Single Payment Scheme revealed that two of the land parcels declared contained ineligible features. A letter issued from my Department on 18 November 2013 advising the person named of the position regarding these two parcels. While the person named was also advised of the right of appeal, to date no such appeal has been received.
