Written answers (Question to Agriculture)

The applicant in question was approved under the Dairy Equipment Scheme of TAMS II for a milking machine. He had already received grant aid for the installation of Milk Storage and Cooling Systems.

The approval letter for the milking machine was issued on the 29th August 2017 and the applicant was advised that he had one full year in which to complete the work and submit a payment claim.  Instructions were also provided in the approval letter on what to do if an extension to this time was required.

No request for an extension was received and the approval has now expired. Under the Terms and Conditions of the Scheme no grant payment can issue to the applicant in this case.
