Dáil Eireann Debate
Minister for Agriculture, Food and Rural Development (Mr. Walsh): The person referred to opted to avail of compensation based on live valuation under the on-farm market valuation scheme when agreeing to depopulate his animals. An initial valuation carried out on 6 March 2001 was appealed by the person concerned. An appeal valuation was carried out on 16 March 2001 and the outcome was accepted by the person concerned and by my Department. Queries with the herdowner in relation to the categorisation of his herd for compensation purposes were finalised on 30 April 2001. A significant interim payment, pending finalisation of payment procedures for this new scheme, will shortly issue to the person concerned.
243. Mr. Finucane asked the Minister for Agriculture, Food and Rural Development the reason his Department is not making a REP scheme payment to a person (details supplied) in County Limerick and if he will make a statement on the matter. [13959/01]
Minister for Agriculture, Food and Rural Development (Mr. Walsh): Documentation which was necessary to allow my Department to process this application was received on 7 March 2001. The application is being processed in accordance with my Department's undertakings under the protocol on direct payments to farmers.
