Written answers (Question to Agriculture)

The persons named changed the herd number shown in 2015 from being held in a single name to being held jointly in both names shown. My Department had no record of having received a 2015 Transfer of Entitlements Allocation Right and Reference Value application from the persons named in order to transfer the Basic Payment Scheme entitlements allocation rights and reference values into the jointly held herd number. My Department contacted the persons named and arranged for this application form to be submitted.

This application is now being finalised and any outstanding payment under the Basic Payment Scheme and the Young Farmers Scheme will issue shortly.

Question No. 439 withdrawn.
