Written answers (Question to Agriculture)

My Department has no record of having received any application under the 2014 Beef Data Programme for the person named. If the person named did send in an application for this Scheme, he will need to write into the Beef Schemes Section, Old Abbeyleix Road, Portlaoise outlining his case and supplying the required certificate of postage of the application, as outlined in the Terms and Conditions of the Scheme. The certificate required under the Terms and Conditions is a Swiftpost receipt. Ordinary certificates of postage cannot be accepted as there is no facility to track these certificates and, therefore, it is not possible to verify that the document was posted on the date stated.
