Department of Agriculture, Food and the Marine
Rural Environment Protection Scheme Payments
489. To ask the Minister for Agriculture, Food and the Marine when a person (details supplied) in County Mayo will receive their rural environment protection scheme payment; and if he will make a statement on the matter. [16198/14]
The person named commenced REPS 4 in March 2009 and received payments for the first five years of their contract.
REPS 4 is a measure under the current 2007-13 Rural Development Programme and is subject to EU Regulations which require detailed administrative checks on all applications to be completed before any payments can issue. This process has now been completed for 2013 payments and the above named has now been authorised for payment. The 75% payment will issue shortly and the 25% payment shortly after that.
