Written Answers. - Grant Payments.

Deputy John O’Mahony asked the Minister for Agriculture, Fisheries and Food if all payments under REP schemes one, two and three due to farmers in County Mayo are paid to date; and if she will make a statement on the matter. [10446/08]

  Deputy Mary Coughlan: There are no active contracts remaining in REPS 1. Valid payment applications in REPS 2 and REPS 3 approved up to 3 March have been scheduled for payment. The failure to supply training certificates or soil samples and the need to clarify apparent discrepancies in area are the main reasons why payment applications cannot be processed.
