 515.  Deputy Michelle Mulherin Information on Michelle Mulherin Zoom on Michelle Mulherin  asked the Minister for Agriculture, Food and the Marine Information on Simon Coveney Zoom on Simon Coveney  the position regarding a REP scheme payment in respect of a person (details supplied) in County Mayo; if same can be expedited as quickly as possible; and if he will make a statement on the matter. [16569/12]

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 1 November 2010 and full payment totalling €368.96 issued in respect of 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. Payment in respect of the 2011 Scheme year is subject to a similar administrative checking process which includes verification of capital investment through checks on receipts. These checks are being finalised and I expect payment for 2011 to issue shortly.
