Written answers (Question to Agriculture)

The person named submitted an application for the 2019 Basic Payment Scheme (BPS) and Areas of Natural Constraint (ANC) Scheme on 14 May 2019.

In relation to the BPS application, my Department has no record of the person named holding any BPS entitlements which could form the basis for payment under the 2019 BPS. 

In relation to the ANC application, the agricultural advisor of the person named submitted details in relation to the stocking requirements under the Scheme.  My Department has responded to seek clarification on a discrepancy in this data and a reply is awaited.  An official from my Department will make contact with the advisor in question to assist in obtaining the clarification required.
