Department of Agriculture, Food and the Marine
757. To ask the Minister for Agriculture, Food and the Marine if a replacement payment will be provided for an agricultural payment made some time ago to a person (details supplied) which was never cashed; if so, when the payment will be made; and if he will make a statement on the matter. [11249/20]
The cattle headage scheme was EU-funded and, following the introduction of compulsory electronic payment to bank accounts in 2008, any funds relating to earlier payable orders that remained un-cashed after a maximum 6 year period were, on the direction of the EU Commission, surrendered back to the EU.
It is not possible, therefore, to reissue such payments in this case.
