Mr. N. O’Keeffe asked the Minister for Agriculture and Food if her attention has been drawn to the fact that payment of extensification under the EU single payment scheme has not issued to a person (details supplied) in County Cork following confirmation that payment was due to issue in recent weeks.

  Mary Coughlan: As indicated in an earlier reply regarding payments due to the person named, the Single Payment Scheme has replaced the old livestock schemes, including the Extensification Premium Scheme. An application under the 2006 Single Payment Scheme was received from the person named on 5 May 2006. The 50% advance payment issued to the person named on 16 October 2006. The balancing payments are due to commence on 1 December 2006.
