Can the Minister tell me how much was clawed back from farmers as a result of the LPIS review for the five years, 2008 to 2012, inclusive? It is actually up to 2013. In other words, how much money was overpaid?

Has the Minister any idea how soon this matter will come to a close? My understanding, in simple English, is that this fine or financial correction - call it what one wishes - will come out of the Department's budget and if the Commission wants €100 million or, as it wants at present, €181 million, that will come out of the Department's budget and would have to repaid that way. Could the Minister confirm that such is the position, how much money was clawed back from farmers or how much were farmers overpaid having gone through the LPIS, and how many outstanding cases are there?
