205 Mr. Collins asked the Minister for Agriculture and Food if he will outline the present position with regard to payment of moneys due under the ewe premium scheme to a person (details supplied) in County Limerick.

My Department is not satisfied that the person named held the number of ewes applied for under the 1989 and 1990 ewe premium schemes for the required 100 day retention period as only 140 ewes out of the 2,146 applied on under both those schemes in 1990 were found at a retention check on 8 June 1990. Payment of premium cannot be made in this case, therefore.

The person named did not apply for grants under the 1991 special beef premium scheme or the EC suckler cow premium scheme for small scale milk producers.

He has however been paid his 1990 EC suckler cow premium scheme grant for small scale milk producers and his 1991 cattle and equines headage schemes grants already.
