Written answers (Question to Agriculture)

I propose to take Questions Nos. 410 and 413 together.

An application under the Basic Payment Scheme (BPS) was received on 27th February 2018 under the herd number provided in the name of one of the persons named. Subsequently, an application was received under the BPS in the names of both persons named.

As part of the validation process for all BPS applications, the two applications have been linked. Further processing is required to finalise the entitlement position for these applications, and this is currently being progressed.
