I propose to take Questions Nos. 255 and 256 together.

An application under the 2015 Basic Payments (BPS)/Areas of Natural Constraints (ANC) Schemes was received from the person named on 12 May 2015. The application for the ANC Scheme is integrated into the BPS application form and in order to apply for the ANC Scheme, applicants are requested to tick a box on the BPS application form.

The person named has declared land parcels containing areas of natural constraints in their BPS application but has not applied for the ANC scheme via the tick box. The Department contacted the person named in early August indicating that he had not applied for the ANC Scheme and requesting clarification on his intentions in relation to applying for the Scheme. On the 16 November, 2015 the person named contacted the Department to request admission to the ANC Scheme. This request is currently being examined, and the person named will be notified of the outcome of this process in due course.

In relation to the application under the BPS, processing of the application has recently been finalised and payment will issue shortly, directly to the nominated bank account of the person named.
