Dáil Éireann Debate
106. Deputy John Deasy asked the Minister for Agriculture, Fisheries and Food the number of farmers in County Waterford in receipt of disadvantaged farm aid in each of the past five years and to date in 2010; and if he will make a statement on the matter. [46722/10]
|County||Year||Numbers Paid||Amount Paid|
Payments to farmers for the period 2005 to 2009 have been fully completed unless there are issues of inheritance or other similar transfers in isolated cases. The 2010 payments under the Disadvantaged Areas Scheme, which commenced on 22 September continue to be made to farmers as there application is fully processed and clear of errors. I am confident that, by year-end, payments to farmers nationally will be well in excess of €200 million under the Disadvantaged Areas Scheme.
