Minister for Agriculture and Food (Mr. Walsh): Payments due to this person  under the 1991 suckler cow premium and beef cow schemes are being processed and will issue shortly. He did not apply for grants under the 1991 special beef premium scheme.
416. Mr. Yates asked the Minister for Agriculture and Food the reason, despite repeated promises by the various sections in his Department, no headage ewe premium has been paid to a person (details supplied) in County Wexford; when this payment will be made; and if he will expedite same in view of the fact that it was a departmental error of classification that caused the delay in the first instance.
Minister for Agriculture and Food (Mr. Walsh): The first and second instalments of the 1991 ewe premium were paid to the person named in September and November 1991. The third and final instalment will be paid in March-April 1992 when the exact amount of that instalment is fixed by the EC Commission. The supplementary payment of £3.52 per ewe will be included with this instalment. Payment of the 1991 sheep headage grant was delayed because of the necessity to check the location of flockowners holdings following the extension and reclassification of the disadvantaged areas. In this case, five separate folios comprising nine different townlands had to be examined to establish his exact entitlement under the sheep headage scheme. This has now been established and payment of the 1991 sheep headage grant will be made within the next week.
