Department of Agriculture, Food and the Marine
Agriculture Scheme Appeals
926. To ask the Minister for Agriculture, Food and the Marine if a decision has been made on an appeal of a decision on a beef exceptional aid measure application by a person (details supplied) in County Kerry; and if he will make a statement on the matter. [2833/20]
The Agriculture Appeals Office operates independently of my Department.
I am advised, however, that the Appeals Office received an appeal on behalf of the person named on 4 December 2019 in relation to the Beef Exceptional Aid Measure (BEAM). The Appeals Office requested the file and a statement on the grounds of appeal from my Department. All relevant documentation has now been received by the Appeals Office.
I am advised that the appeal has now been assigned to an Appeals Officer and that the Office will be in contact with the appellant shortly to arrange an oral hearing of the appeal.
