Written answers (Question to Agriculture)

The person named submitted an application under the Young Farmers Capital Investment Scheme of TAMS II on 4 April 2019. Approvals are issued after each tranche closes subject to factors such as budget availability etc. are finalised.

Following the ranking and selection process for the most recent tranche, the application was not selected for approval and the person named has been advised that the application has been rolled over to the next tranche which closed on Friday 5 July 2019. Once all applications in this tranche have been assessed, a further ranking and selection process will take place, following which successful applicants will go forward for further technical checks.

TAMS II is a demand-led scheme and all applications received in the latest tranche will be processed as quickly as possible.
