The process of on-farm inspections and approval of payments under the Farm Waste Management Scheme in Counties Cavan and Monaghan is continuing and, to date in 2009, 1,539 payments totalling almost €24.7 million have been made to farmers in those counties under the Scheme, whilst a further 348 claims for grant-aid have been inspected and approved for payment. The remaining claims for grant-aid under the Scheme have either been inspected and are still under query or are currently being processed within my Department.
