 502.  Deputy Brendan Griffin Information on Brendan Griffin Zoom on Brendan Griffin  asked the Minister for Agriculture, Food and the Marine Information on Simon Coveney Zoom on Simon Coveney  when REP scheme payment will issue to a person (details supplied) in County Kerry in view of the time delay associated with this file and the hardship that this is causing for the person involved; and if he will make a statement on the matter. [16344/12]

Minister for Agriculture, Food and the Marine (Deputy Simon Coveney): Information on Simon Coveney Zoom on Simon Coveney The person named commenced REPS 4 in May 2009 and received payments for the first two years of his contract.

REPS 4 is a measure under the current 2007-13 Rural Developments Programme and is subject to EU Regulations which require detailed administrative checks on all applications to be completed before any payments can issue. Following a cross-compliance inspection an area discrepancy was discovered between the Single Payment Scheme application and the REPS Agri-Environmental Plan which has resulted in the necessity for further clarification. This issue is currently being investigated with the intention of an early resolution and payment in respect of 2011.
