Tuesday, 15 June 1999
Dáil Éireann Debate
Minister for Agriculture and Food (Mr. Walsh): As stated in my reply to Parliamentary Question No. 118 of 12 May 1999, in order to be considered for disadvantaged areas headage payments, herdowners must submit a valid area aid  application for the relevant year. The person named did not submit an area aid application in 1998 and consequently no headage payments can issue in respect of 1998.
The person named did not lodge an application for the 1998 suckler cow premium, ewe premium, sheep headage or special beef premium schemes and consequently he is not eligible for grants under any of these schemes.
178. Mr. Kenny asked the Minister for Agriculture and Food when payment in respect of headage will issue to a person (details supplied) in County Mayo; and if he will make a statement on the matter. [15130/99]
Minister for Agriculture and Food (Mr. Walsh): The person named is not the registered herdowner in the case of the herd number quoted. An application for transfer of ownership was received in the Department on 3 June 1999 and is at present under consideration.
