Mr. J. Walsh Mr. J. Walsh
321. Mr. J. Walsh asked the Minister for Agriculture, Food and Forestry if he will approve an application under the 1997 suckler cow quota reserve for a person (details supplied) in County Cork. [12554/97]
Minister for Agriculture, Food and Forestry (Mr. Yates) Ivan Yates
Minister for Agriculture, Food and Forestry (Mr. Yates): One of the conditions applying to the distribution of quota from the 1997 national reserve is that the gross income of the applicant, including that of the spouse-partner, must not exceed £16,472. The gross income is taken as the total income from all sources before any deductions are made.
Accounts submitted by the person named show that her husband's gross income was £34,710.
As this exceeds the permitted limit, the person  named does not qualify for an allocation of quota from this reserve.
