Written answers (Question to Agriculture)

The person named submitted an application for the Basic Payment Scheme (BPS) on 6 May 2020.

As part of the standard processing of the application, two issues were identified. The first of these issues was a dual claim arising with another applicant. This issue has been resolved.

The second issue relates to an overlap on claimed land with another applicant. With regard to this issue, further information has been requested from the third party involved. Officials from my Department have directly contacted this third party in order to expedite the matter. As soon as this information is received, the persons named will be contacted by my officials to finalise this matter at the earliest date possible.
