Written answers (Question to Agriculture)

A review of the land parcels declared by the person named under the Single Payment Scheme revealed that several of the land parcels declared by the person named contained ineligible features. As the person named applied for a review of my Department's decision, a visit by a Department official to verify the position is necessary to resolve the matter. This verification visit will be conducted shortly and the applicant will be informed of the outcome of the visit as soon as is possible. In the event that the person named is dissatisfied with the outcome of this verification check, the decision can be appealed to the independently-chaired LPIS Appeals Committee.
