Written answers (Question to Agriculture)

An application under the BEAM scheme was submitted under appeal by the person named on the 19th August 2019 as they believed they had animals eligible for payment under the scheme. The tag numbers provided by the person named as part of the appeal were reviewed by officials from my Department and it was determined that they did not meet the eligibility criteria for payment under the scheme.

A letter detailing this decision issued to the person named on the 7th October 2019. This letter informed them of their right to appeal this outcome to the independent Agriculture Appeals Office.
