Department of Agriculture, Food and the Marine
Agriculture Schemes Payments
146. To ask the Minister for Agriculture, Food and the Marine when a person (details supplied) in County Kerry will be paid their 2013 disadvantaged area payment and 2013 single farm payment; the reason for the delay in paying these grants; and if he will make a statement on the matter. [47295/13]
An application under the 2013 Single Farm Payment/Disadvantaged Areas’ Scheme was received from the named person in my Department on the 2nd of May 2013. During the processing of this application it was discovered that there was an over-claim on a commonage parcel claimed by a number of applicants, including the person named. An Official of my Department has made direct contact with the person named and clarified the matter regarding this overclaim. I expect that payments will shortly issue to the nominated bank account of the person named.
