Department of Agriculture, Food and the Marine
Agriculture Schemes Payments
74. To ask the Minister for Agriculture, Food and the Marine when payments will be made in respect of a person (details supplied) in County Galway in relation to disadvantaged areas scheme and single payment scheme. [44507/14]
The person named submitted a 2014 Single Farm Payment/Disadvantaged Areas’ scheme application on 13 May 2014. EU Regulations governing the administration of these schemes require that full and comprehensive administrative checks, including in some cases on-farm inspections, be completed before any payments issue.
The application of the person named was selected for a ground eligibility inspection.
This inspection has been completed and the results are now being finalised with the intention of issuing any payment due as soon as possible. In the event that any queries arise officials in my Department will be in contact with the person named.
