Written answers (Question to Agriculture)

Under the 2013 Disadvantaged Areas Scheme, applicants were required to maintain a minimum stocking density on their holding of 0.15 livestock units per forage hectare for a minimum retention period of seven consecutive months, in addition to maintaining an annual average of 0.15 livestock units calculated over the 12 months of the scheme year. Payment under the 2013 Scheme could not issue to the person named as their holding did not satisfy these requirements.
