Department of Agriculture, Food and the Marine
Basic Payment Scheme Payments
155. To ask the Minister for Agriculture, Food and the Marine when he will issue payment to a person (details supplied) in County Galway under the young farmer scheme; and if he will make a statement on the matter. [3624/16]
The person named is not an applicant under the Young Farmer Scheme. The person named submitted a 2015 Private Contract Clause application to my Department seeking the transfer of land and entitlements by lease as transferee. She has also submitted an application for an allocation of Basic Payment Scheme entitlements under the Scottish Derogation measure. Outstanding issues with the transferor in the Private Contract Clause application are currently preventing the processing of these applications.
