 498.  Deputy Michael Creed Information on Michael Creed Zoom on Michael Creed  asked the Minister for Agriculture, Food and the Marine Information on Simon Coveney Zoom on Simon Coveney  if a person (details supplied) in County Cork has received payment in respect of their single payment scheme and disadvantaged area scheme; if so, the date that this payment was issued; and if he will make a statement on the matter. [16160/12]

Minister for Agriculture, Food and the Marine (Deputy Simon Coveney): Information on Simon Coveney Zoom on Simon Coveney An application under the Single Payment Scheme/Disadvantaged Areas Scheme was received from the person named on the 27th April 2011.

This application was selected for a ground eligibility inspection. During the course of this inspection discrepancies were found that resulted in a claimed area of 49.29ha being reduced to a found area of 49.04ha. As the difference between the area declared and the area found was less than 3% and 2ha, under EU Regulations, no penalty would apply and the found area would be put forward for payment.

The person named was informed of this decision by formal notice on the 5th of December 2011 and of his right to seek a review. He was also informed of his right to appeal the outcome of any such review to the Independent Agriculture Appeals Office. To date there is no record of any such a request being made.

Payment under the Single Payment Scheme was made on the 1st of December 2011 and payment under the Disadvantaged Area Scheme was made on the 7th of December 2011.
