Department of Agriculture, Food and the Marine
Milk Quota Applications
176. To ask the Minister for Agriculture, Food and the Marine the position regarding an application under the milk quota trading scheme, selling quota, in respect of a person (details supplied) in County Limerick; and if he will make a statement on the matter. [12442/14]
The closing date for receipt of applications to the second stage of the 2014-2015 Milk Quota Trading Scheme was 7 February 2014. An application from the named person was received in my Department before that date. The processing of the applications is now at an advanced stage, and I expect to be in a position to announce the results of the scheme at the end of March. At that time my Department will notify all Co-ops of the outcome of the scheme and they, in turn, will inform their participating suppliers of the outcome of their individual applications.
