Minister for Agriculture and Food (Mr. Walsh): The person named submitted an application and agri-environmental plan dated 23/5/1995 for inclusion in the REP scheme. The total area claimed for REPS purposes was 52.52 hectares. It subsequently emerged that of the total area, 13.55 hectares were ineligible for payment under the scheme.
