Department of Agriculture, Food and the Marine
Single Payment Scheme Payments
510. To ask the Minister for Agriculture, Food and the Marine when payment of single farm grant will issue to a person (details supplied) in County Donegal; and if he will make a statement on the matter. [25573/14]
A review of the lands declared by the person named under the 2013 Single Payment Scheme revealed that a number of the land parcels declared contained ineligible features. In order to clarify the position regarding the area of any ineligible features my Department arranged for a ground verification check to be undertaken. The outcome of this check resulted in an over claim in area of greater than 20% being recorded which under the terms and conditions of the Single Payment Scheme results in no payment being due in respect of 2013. The person named was notified of this decision on the 10th June 2014. In the event that the person named is dissatisfied with the outcome of the verification check, the decision can be appealed to the independent LPIS Appeals Committee, within 3 months of the notification letter.
