Written answers (Question to Agriculture)

All applications received in any given tranche of TAMS II are subject to an initial administrative check. All of the applications received that pass this initial check, are then subject to the computerised Ranking and Selection process as set out in the terms and conditions pertaining to each of the seven measures available under the scheme.

The administrative checking of these applications is currently proceeding and it is expected that the Ranking and Selection process will commence this week with approvals to those selected through this process commencing shortly.
