Written answers (Question to Agriculture)

Table A details the number of Basic Payment Scheme entitlement holders with an Initial Unit Value less than 60% of the Basic Payment Scheme national average from 2015 to 2019 by county while Table B shows the percentage of Basic Payment Scheme entitlement holders with an Initial Unit Value less than 60% of the Basic Payment Scheme national average out of the total Basic Payment Scheme entitlement holders from 2015 to 2019 by county.

The Basic Payment Scheme came into being in 2015 therefore values are not available for 2014. The future of CAP in the year 2020 and beyond continues to be subject to discussion, therefore values for 2020 are not available. As outlined in the tables below, all Basic Payment Scheme entitlement holders will have entitlements values above or equal to 60% of the Basic Payment Scheme national average in 2019. All values are subject to rounding.
