Mary Coughlan: The holding of the person concerned has been restricted since 10 August 2004.
With regard to payment of compensation, my Department’s local District Office wrote to the person concerned on 16 May 2006 informing him of the decision to withhold part of the compensation and advising him that he could appeal to the Regional Assistant Principal Officer. The file is currently under review by the Regional Assistant Principal Officer and the herd-owner will be notified of the outcome of the appeal in due course. However, any payment that may arise will not be paid until the herd-owner submits any outstanding documents and complies with the instruction which issued on 4 December 2005 to cleanse and disinfect the holding.
