The person named submitted an application under the single payment scheme on 12 May 2005. He also included an application to consolidate his entitlements under the scheme. Following an initial examination of the consolidation application, it was noted that the person named declared 4.60 hectares of potatoes on his 2005 single payment application. In accordance with Article 51 of Council Regulation (EC) No. 1782/2003, lands used for the production of potatoes and-or fruit-vegetables declared by applicants under the single payment scheme are not eligible to benefit from payment but these hectares must be included in the number of consolidated entitlements established for the applicant. My Department issued a letter to the person named on 7 March 2006 outlining the position and requesting that he indicate whether he wished to proceed or withdraw his consolidation application. Upon receipt of a reply from the person named, my Department will be in a position to complete processing of his application and arrange for payment to issue.

The person named submitted an application under the inheritance measure of the single payment scheme 2005. This application has been successfully processed and the entitlements have been transferred to the person named. The person named also submitted a private contract clause to transfer to another farmer by lease agreement 8.92 hectares and the corresponding amount of entitlements. This application has been successfully processed. The applicant is not entitled to benefit from the single payment in 2005, as she did not declare any lands on her application.
