Written answers (Question to Agriculture)

BEAM applicants who are not a member of one of my Department's environmental schemes have the option of committing to join Bord Bia's Quality Assurance scheme by 1st December. In cases where this is not possible, applicants should seek an appeal of their application and their case will be examined on an individual basis.

The scheme is now operational and the rules cannot be revised.
