Written answers (Question to Agriculture)

Applications for  the Beef Exceptional Aid Measure (BEAM) were accepted between the 19th August and the 20th September 2019.  An application was received from the person named on 6th September 2019.  

Each BEAM applicant retains the right to have the figures presented to them as part of their application reviewed.  While no such request had been received in my Department from the person named, I have asked my officials to consider the information submitted by the Deputy as a request for a review.  This review will now be carried out and the person named will be informed of the outcome as soon as it is available.

Following the outcome of this review, the option of a further appeal to the Agriculture Appeals Office will remain available to the person named.
