The total number of applications received under Tranche 13 of the TAMS II Scheme was 3,209. This was significantly higher than the average number of applications for previous tranches which is 1,800.

As a result, all cases were ranked on the basis of the marking system provided for under each measure and the lowest ranked 20% (just under 700 cases) were rolled over for consideration under Tranche 14 of the scheme.

Approvals have commenced to the cases selected and are continuing to issue on an ongoing basis as the examination of individual applications is finalised. The following table sets out the applications received by county and the approvals that have issued as of today's date.
