Question 439: To ask the Minister for Agriculture; Fisheries and Food if a 1% single farm payment penalty in respect of a person (details supplied) in County Kerry will be reconsidered in view of the financial difficulty that this will cause the person and the relatively minor nature of the non compliance issue; and if he will make a statement on the matter.

An application under the Single Payment Scheme/Disadvantaged Areas Scheme was received from the person named on the 14th of April 2010.

This application was selected for a Cross Compliance/Ground Eligibility inspection.

During the course of the Cross Compliance inspection breaches were recorded relating to a bovine herd register, bovine passport, incomplete flock register and missing sheep dispatch dockets that resulted in an overall Cross Compliance penalty of 1% being recorded in this case.

The person named was informed of this decision and of his right to seek a review. He was also informed of his right to appeal the outcome of a review to the Independent Agriculture Appeals office. To date, no such review request has been submitted.
