Written answers (Question to Agriculture)

The person named commenced REPS 4 in October 2009 and received payments for the first four years of their contract.

REPS 4 is a measure under the current 2007-13 Rural Development Programme and is subject to EU Regulations which require detailed administrative checks on all applications to be completed before any payments can issue. Following a review of the file, a potential area clawback was identified. This issue is currently being investigated and the Department will notify the person named of the outcome.
