Department of Agriculture, Food and the Marine
Agriculture Scheme Appeals
745. To ask the Minister for Agriculture, Food and the Marine when a director's review of an agriculture appeals decision in respect of a person (details supplied) in County Kerry will be completed; and if he will make a statement on the matter. [24147/19]
The request for a review of the Appeals Officer's decision in relation to the person named was received by the Agriculture Appeals Office. The review of the Appeals Officer's decision is required to determine if the Appeals Officer made an error of fact or law in that decision.
A number of requests for reviews were received prior to the request and carrying out comprehensive reviews of the cases concerned can take some time depending on the complexity of the issues. I am advised that every effort is being made to finalise the review of the case concerned as soon as possible and that it is anticipated that a decision will issue shortly.
