Written Answers. - Milk Quota.

Michael Moynihan

Ceist:

78 Mr. M. Moynihan asked the Minister for Agriculture and Food the reason milk quota was not allocated to a person (details supplied) in County Cork under the 32 million gallons scheme. [19213/03]

The allocation of the balance of the Agenda 2000 milk quota to certain categories of small and medium scale milk producers has been completed and applicants have been notified of the outcome in their cases. An application was submitted by the person named in relation to this quota and, as he successfully satisfied the conditions of the scheme, an allocation was made in his case.

An appeal was subsequently lodged by this applicant but, based on the evidence provided, he was not eligible for a further allocation. The result of this appeal was issued to the appellant on 19 June.
