Written answers (Question to Agriculture)

In order to qualify for payment under the 2013 Beef Technology Adoption Programme participants were required to attend six meetings and satisfactorily complete two Tasks, chosen from a menu of 10 Tasks. One of the two Tasks chosen by the person named (Task 4, relating to soil sampling) did not comply with the requirements of the Programme, as the person named was also a participant in AEOS 2. The Terms and Conditions of the 2013 Programme clearly precluded AEOS 2 participants from selecting Task 4 as one of their qualifying Tasks under the 2013 Programme. Accordingly, no payment is due to the person named under the 2013 Programme.
