Written answers (Question to Agriculture)

I can confirm that an application was received in my Department on 15 May 2013 to transfer entitlements from another farmer to the person named. Unfortunately the transfer could not be processed in my Department and I regret that under the Data Protection Act I am not at liberty to disclose the reason for the non-processing of the application. The person named may wish to make contact with the transferor with a view to clarifying the situation.
