Written answers (Question to Agriculture)

I propose to take Questions Nos. 451 and 452 together.

With regard to the 2013 Single Payment Scheme, as the person named does not hold any payments entitlements, no payment is due. Processing of the application of the person named under the 2013 Disadvantaged Area Scheme revealed over-claims in respect of three of the land parcels declared by the person named. The person named was notified accordingly, by letter, with which maps of the relevant land parcels were enclosed. The person named was also advised of their right of appeal; however, to date, no response has been received.
