An application under the 2010 Single Payment Scheme was received from the person named on 13 May 2010. The 50% advance payment, which issued on 18 October and the further 30% payment, which issued on 1 December, were both on the basis of those parcels cleared for payment at that stage, as a number of other land parcels listed on the application of the person named required re-digitisation. This process was recently completed, following which the balancing payment due issued directly to the nominated bank account of the person named on 31 January.

This case concerns the lodgment of an application for grant-aid under the Young Farmers' Installation Scheme after the decision to suspend the Scheme for new applications on 14 October 2008.

Legal advice is being obtained by my Department in relation to the validity of the decisions taken by the Agriculture Appeals Office. No decision will be taken in relation to payment in the case concerned until this advice has been received.

An application under the 2010 Single Payment Scheme was received from the person named on 14 April 2010. The 50% advance payment, which issued on 18 October, was on the basis of those parcels cleared for payment at that stage as a number of other land parcels listed on the application of the person named required re-digitisation. Following re-digitisation, two land parcels were found to be over-claimed and, following correspondence, the person named confirmed that he was not entitled to declare the area claimed for these parcels. Consequently, the appropriate reduction penalty was applied, as per the Terms and Conditions of the Scheme. The balancing payment, which issued on 1 December, was calculated on this basis.
