Department of Agriculture, Food and the Marine
Agriculture Scheme Appeals
281. To ask the Minister for Agriculture, Food and the Marine if a decision has been made on an appeal in relation to an over-claim that was submitted by this Deputy dated 14 May 2015 on behalf of a person (details supplied) in County Galway; the details of the decision made; the effects this decision will have on past, current and future payments under the areas of natural constraint scheme and the basic payment scheme; the reason for the delay, if a decision has not been made on the appeal; when a decision will be made; and if he will make a statement on the matter. [41798/15]
An application under the 2014 Single Payment/Disadvantaged Areas Scheme was received from the person named on 5 May 2014. This application was subject to a Land Parcel Identification System review, which identified ineligible areas. Following further examination of the application the determined area has been re-evaluated, and my Department is currently in the process of issuing any outstanding payments due to the person named.
Payments under the 2015 Basic Payment/Areas of Natural Constraints schemes have issued directly to the nominated bank account of the person named in respect of 28.13 determined hectares.
