Department of Agriculture, Food and the Marine
Single Payment Scheme Administration
217. To ask the Minister for Agriculture, Food and the Marine why there is a delay in transferring entitlements to a person (details supplied); when the transfer will be completed; and if he will make a statement on the matter. [1902/16]
The person named submitted a 2015 Transfer of Allocation Right and Reference Value application to my Department. All details relating to land parcel details for 2013 and 2015 and Single Payment entitlement values for 2014 had to be reconciled in order to process this application. This application has been fully processed and payment under the Basic Payment Scheme has issued on 19 January 2016. The person named submitted applications under the ‘young farmer’ category of the 2015 National Reserve and the Young Farmers Scheme. These applications have recently been finalised and payment will issue as soon as possible.
