Written answers (Question to Agriculture)

The person named submitted a 2019 Basic Payment Scheme application on the 4th May 2019. EU Regulations governing the administration of this scheme 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 is currently being processed with the intention of issuing any payments due as soon as possible. In the event that any queries arise, officials in my Department will be in contact with the person named.
