Written answers (Question to Agriculture)

The holding in question was restricted under the TB Eradication scheme on 15 November 2013 following the disclosure of 24 reactors. The reactors were removed for slaughter on 13 December 2013 and compensation was paid in respect of these animals under the On Farm Market Valuation Scheme on 10 January 2014.

The person named received an initial month’s payment under the Income Supplement Scheme on 5 February 2014 and payment in respect of a second month (to 13 February 2014) will issue shortly. However, no further payments under this Scheme will fall due as the person named waived her entitlement in the context of receiving permission to move animals into her restricted holding.
