Vol. 551 No. 2

Written Answers. - Milk Quota.

Michael Creed


216 Mr. Creed asked the Minister for Agriculture, Food and Rural Development if he will examine an application for additional temporary milk quota from a person (details supplied) in County Cork. [10333/02]

(Mr. Walsh): The allocation of milk quota from the national reserve is granted on the basis of recommendations from the milk quota appeals tribunal. The tribunal is a body established to consider and advise on applications for additional quota from individual producers who have suffered severe hardship in the context of the milk quota system. The tribunal also considers applications for temporary allocations to producers who encounter quota difficulties due to animal disease restrictions. The person in question has submitted an application for additional quota on the grounds of animal disease. His application was examined by the tribunal and he has been notified of the outcome.
