Department of Agriculture, Food and the Marine
Single Payment Scheme Payments
111. To ask the Minister for Agriculture, Food and the Marine the status of a single payment for a person (details supplied) in County Wexford; when will payment be made; and if he will make a statement on the matter. [41000/15]
The person named submitted a 2015 Basic Payment /Areas of Natural Constraint Scheme application on 27 May 2015. EU Regulations governing the administration of these schemes require that full and comprehensive administrative checks, including in some cases Remote Sensing (i.e. satellite) inspections, be completed before any payments issue. The application of the person named was selected for a Remote Sensing eligibility inspection. This inspection is currently being processed with the intention of issuing any payments due under the Direct Payments Schemes as soon as possible. In the event that any queries arise officials in my Department will be in contact with the person named.
