 513.  Deputy John O’Mahony Information on John O'Mahony Zoom on John O'Mahony  asked the Minister for Agriculture, Food and the Marine Information on Simon Coveney Zoom on Simon Coveney  when a person (details supplied) in County Mayo will receive an agri-environment options scheme payment for 2010; and if he will make a statement on the matter. [16497/12]

Minister for Agriculture, Food and the Marine (Deputy Simon Coveney): Information on Simon Coveney Zoom on Simon Coveney The person named was approved for participation in the Agri-Environment Options Scheme with effect from the 1st November 2010.

Under the EU Regulations governing the Scheme and other area-based payment schemes, a comprehensive administrative check, including cross-checks with the Land Parcel Identification System, have to be completed before any payment can issue. During these checks a query arose in respect of land parcels declared which require digitisation of the areas concerned. This is being dealt with by my Department at present and once the digitisation process is completed, the application will be processed with a view to making payment at the earliest opportunity.
