Written answers (Question to Agriculture)

As indicated to the Deputy previously, the position is that my Department did not carry out an investigation into environmental concerns at the farm detailed.

Checks were carried out in relation to digestate under Regulation 1069/2009 which includes legislation to protect ‘public and animal health’ rather than ‘environment’.

The outcome of animal health investigations on the farm were satisfactory and are concluded.
