Department of Agriculture, Food and the Marine
877. To ask the Minister for Agriculture, Food and the Marine if entitlement allocation rights in respect of farmers (details supplied) in County Kerry will be reviewed; and if he will make a statement on the matter. [6085/20]
Officials in my Department have reviewed the case in question and have confirmed that the allocation of entitlements was calculated correctly. The person named established an allocation right of 211.19 payment entitlements at start of the current CAP programme in 2015. This allocation was based on the lower area of land declared by the above named in 2013 and 2015 and the value of the payment amount in 2014.
In this instance, Department staff have also been in contact with the Deputy to explain in further detail the case in question.
