125. Mr. N. O’Keeffe asked the Minister for Agriculture and Food the reason for the delay in a case (details supplied) being brought before the Court of Arbitration. [16398/04]
Mr. Walsh Mr. Walsh
Mr. Walsh:Under the procedural arrangements in place for the arbitration process under the on-farm market valuation scheme and based on the date the appeal valuation was completed, it was not possible to include the appeal of the person concerned with other cases heard at the most recent arbitration hearings held on 12 and 13 January 2004. At this stage, it is intended to have further arbitration hearings in late June-early July and his appeal is scheduled for inclusion in these hearings. In this regard, the arbitrator will  be writing to the person concerned. Pending completion of the arbitration process on 5 April 2004, my Department paid the person concerned an amount, which was calculated by reference to the full value of the existing valuation.
