To ask the Minister for Agriculture, Food and the Marine the number of applications received under the targeted agricultural modernisation scheme 2 in tabular form; the number of approved applications; the number of payment claims logged; the number of payment claims that have been approved for payment; the amount of funding allocated to the scheme under the 2014-2020 RDP; the amount expended to date; and if he will make a statement on the matter.

There are a wide variety of investment items available under the suite of seven measures under TAMS II. The financial allocation in respect of TAMS for the full Rural Development Programme period will be in the region of €395m. To date, total expenditure has exceeded €216m, with a further approximately €120m in commitments to farmers who have yet to make a payment claim.  Payments continue to issue at the average rate of €1.3m per week.

I would encourage all farmers who have completed approved works and have payment claims outstanding in relation to TAMS II to submit them to the Department’s online system as soon as the works are completed to facilitate the prompt issue of payments.

The information requested in tabular form is as set out in the following table:

Applications Received 35,532
Approvals Issued 28,611
Payment Claims Received 15,250
Number Paid 14,424
Total amount Paid €216,208,490
