As the agri-environment Options Scheme has not yet been launched, no funds have been spent on it so far. I intend to launch the scheme in the very near future. The Minister for Finance has committed to provide funding for the acceptance initially of up to 10,000 participants into the new scheme at a maximum payment of €5,000 per participant.

Question No. 62 answered with Question No. 25.
