The Sheep Fencing/Mobile Handling Equipment Scheme, being one of the Targeted Agricultural Modernisation Schemes (TAMS) introduced by my Department, was suspended for new applications on 8 June 2011 pending the outcome of the comprehensive review of my Department's expenditure which is currently taking place. No decision will therefore be taken on the reopening of TAMS until this review has been completed.
