Vol. 506 No. 2

Written Answers. - Grant Payments.

Michael Ring


177 Mr. Ring asked the Minister for Agriculture and Food when a person (details supplied) in County Mayo will receive payment of headage and premia. [15129/99]

As stated in my reply to Parliamentary Question No. 118 of 12 May 1999, in order to be considered for disadvantaged areas headage payments, herdowners must submit a valid area aid application for the relevant year. The person named did not submit an area aid application in 1998 and consequently no headage payments can issue in respect of 1998.

The person named did not lodge an application for the 1998 suckler cow premium, ewe premium, sheep headage or special beef premium schemes and consequently he is not eligible for grants under any of these schemes.

If the applicant wishes to submit a postal certificate as evidence of posting, and a copy of his application form, the area aid unit will examine the case again.

Enda Kenny


178 Mr. Kenny asked the Minister for Agriculture and Food when payment in respect of headage will issue to a person (details supplied) in County Mayo; and if he will make a statement on the matter. [15130/99]

The person named is not the registered herdowner in the case of the herd number quoted. An application for transfer of ownership was received in the Department on 3 June 1999 and is at present under consideration.
