Written answers (Question to Agriculture)

A review of the lands declared by the person named under the Single Payment Scheme in 2012 and 2013 revealed that a number of land parcels declared contained ineligible features. In order to clarify the position regarding the area of any ineligible features my Department arranged for a ground verification check to be undertaken. This verification check has been completed and the results are now being finalised. The person named will be shortly notified of the outcome, in writing. In the event that the person named is dissatisfied with the outcome of this verification check, the decision can be appealed to the independent chaired LPIS Appeals Committee.
