Written answers (Question to Agriculture)

The person named submitted a 2019 Basic Payment Scheme application on the 13th April 2019. EU Regulations governing the administration of these schemes require that full and comprehensive administrative checks, including in some cases remote sensing (i.e. satellite) inspections, be completed before any payments issue.

The application of the person named was selected for a Remote Sensing eligibility inspection. This inspection has now been completed and the results have been processed to finalisation. Payments due under the Basic Payment Scheme will issue shortly to the nominated bank account of the person named.
