Written answers (Question to Agriculture)

The person named submitted an application under the LESS Scheme of TAMS II. Following submission of the paperwork required to finalise the payment claim, a number of issues arose and, as a result, no payment issued. These issues related to the fact that the equipment purchased was previously included on a TAMS application submitted by another person and it was also found, at the time of the submission of the claim, that the LESS equipment did not have a direct use on the holding concerned.

The person named, in accordance with standard procedure, was provided with the opportunity to request a review of the decision and this review is currently being carried out.
