Written answers (Question to Agriculture)

A review of the land parcels declared by the person named under the 2013 Single Payment Scheme revealed that several of the land parcels declared contained ineligible features. As the person named submitted an application for a review of my Department’s decision, a visit by a Department official to verify the position was necessary to progress the matter. This verification visit was conducted and the outcome of the visit was relayed to the person named in a letter dated 28th May 2014. The implications for the person named under his applications for the Single Payment Scheme, the Disadvantaged Areas Scheme and the AEOS Scheme are currently under examination and the person named will be informed in writing of the outcome of this examination.
