Written answers (Question to Agriculture)

Under 2013 Disadvantaged Areas Scheme, eligible applicants’ holdings were required to have satisfied minimum stocking density of 0.15 livestock units for a retention period of seven consecutive months, in addition to maintaining an annual average of 0.15 livestock units calculated over the twelve months of the scheme year. The person named did not satisfy these minimum requirements. Therefore, no payment is due to the person named under the 2013 Scheme.
