Written answers (Question to Agriculture)

In relation to the Basic Payment Scheme (BPS) application of the person named, a dual claim arose in respect of the land in question after the processing of his 2017 BPS payment. 

My Department contacted the person named in writing concerning this dual claim. A reply to this correspondence has now been received from the person named, and the parcels concerned have again been claimed by the person named under the 2018 BPS.  The reply received and all other relevant documentation are currently being examined with a view to resolving the dual claim identified.
