Mr. P. Breen asked the Minister for Agriculture and Food the reason an application to her Department under the milk quota trading scheme for 2007 and 2008 was not processed for a person (details supplied) in County Clare; and if she will make a statement on the matter. [6939/07]

Mary Coughlan: The first Milk Quota Trading Scheme attracted some 5,500 applications last November and for the first time involved the Department in directly managing and operating a restructuring scheme on behalf of all Coops throughout the country. As part of the processing arrangements application forms were entered into the database by an external data entry bureau. In this particular case, the application was overlooked in the data entry process. This was an unfortunate oversight, but the person named may apply again to the second scheme, which has a closing date of 9th March.
