Written answers (Question to Agriculture)

I wish to inform the Deputy that the Agriculture Appeals Office operates independently of my Department.

I have been advised that the records of the Agriculture Appeals Office indicate that an appeal in relation to Beef Finisher Payment was received from the person named in October 2020. The Appeals Office requested the file and a statement on the grounds of appeal from my Department and all relevant documentation was forwarded to the Appeals Office.

I am advised that the appeal has now been finalised and a decision issued to the person named on 19 January 2021.
