Department of Agriculture, Food and the Marine
Single Payment Scheme Payments
193. To ask the Minister for Agriculture, Food and the Marine why a person (details supplied) has not received payment under the single payment scheme, given that the person understands from a Teagasc adviser that it has been sanctioned but there is some issue with payments to a limited company. [2901/16]
An application under the Basic Payment Scheme was received from the person named on 30 March 2015. Processing of the application has now been finalised and payment will issue to the nominated bank account of the person named in the coming days.
An application from the person named under the 2014 Single Payment Scheme was received in the Department on 13 May 2014. The person named was subject to a Land Parcel Identification System inspection in 2013. The eligible area was reduced on foot of this inspection and the ensuing penalty was applied to his 2014 Single Payment. The person named subsequently submitted an appeal which has recently been upheld. The balancing payment outstanding will issue to the nominated bank account of the person named shortly.
