Written answers (Question to Agriculture)

The Agriculture Appeals Office operates independently of my Department.

I am advised that the Appeals Office received an appeal on behalf of the person named on 31 July 2019 in relation to the Agri-Environment Options Scheme (AEOS). The Appeals Office requested the file and a statement on the grounds of appeal from my Department. All the relevant documents have recently been received by the Appeals Office.

I am advised that the appeal has now been assigned to an Appeals Officer and that the Office will be in contact with the appellant shortly to arrange an oral hearing of the appeal.
