Written answers (Question to Agriculture)

An application under the  2018 Basic Payment Scheme was received from the person named on 02 May 2018. Following processing the eligible area of a land parcel was reduced on foot of standard processing checks.

This decision was appealed and an official of my Department has made direct contact with the authorised agricultural agent of the person named. Additional information has been requested in relation to the eligibility of the land parcel concerned. When the information requested is received, it will be examined with a view to finalising the review process in this case.
