Written Answers. - Grant Payment.

96.

asked the Minister for Agriculture when a headage grant will be paid to persons (details supplied) in County Clare; and the reason for the delay of such payment.

Payment of the 1985 cattle headage grant to the persons named is being withheld pending the outcome of investigations into the possible movement of animals between their herd and that of another herdowner. It is not possible at this stage to state if or when grants will be paid.
