Commenting on the issuing of application forms, the North Clare Fianna Fail Deputy said he was pleased the Department of Agriculture had commenced the issuing of applications He added: "This is the sixth year of the Single Payment Scheme and it is important that each farmer ensures that the data is correct. While the data is pre-printed as an aid to completing the forms, nevertheless it remains the responsibility of each applicant to ensure that it is entirely accurate."

The Minister said: "I am pleased to say that these applications are issuing as early as possible, but I would urge everyone concerned to take the time to double-check the pre-printed data to ensure itsí accuracy. While the practise of pre-printing data on the application forms has been very beneficial for both applicants and his Department, the onus rests with applicants to satisfy themselves as to its accuracy."
