Dáil Eireann Debate
297. Mr. P. Breen asked the Minister for Agriculture and Food when a person (details supplied) in County Clare will receive annual payment for forestry; and if she will make a statement on the matter. [5867/05]
Minister for Agriculture and Food (Mary Coughlan): The person named, having been notified that the circumstances outlined by him did not satisfy the criteria for force majeure/exceptional circumstances under Article 40 of Council Regulation (EC) No. 1782/2003, submitted an appeal to the independent single payment appeals committee.
Following a full examination of the circumstances in the appeal, the findings of the independent single payment appeals committee were that the original decision taken by my Department should be upheld.
However further information relating to the appeal was received after the date of the appeals committee decision. A full review of the circumstances of the case including this additional information will be carried out by the independent single payment appeals committee at its meeting scheduled for 23 February 2005 and the person named will be notified shortly of the outcome.
