Department of Agriculture, Food and the Marine
Dairy Equipment Scheme Applications
161. To ask the Minister for Agriculture, Food and the Marine if a combination of purchased and leased quota will qualify a person (details supplied) in County Kerry for a dairy equipment scheme grant; and if he will make a statement on the matter. [25073/14]
The person concerned is an applicant under the TAMS Dairy Equipment Scheme and lodged an application for grant aid with my Department on 18 December 2013. The application was initially rejected by my Department but, following an appeal, it has now been decided to accept it for processing. In this context, a combination of purchased and leased quota will not be an obstacle, subject to the other provisions of the Scheme having been complied with. The person concerned has been notified and has been requested to return his application so that processing of the application can recommence.
