The Clare T.D. noted that the Department of Agriculture sent the 1C forms to the farmers concerned in the month before their anniversary date. Clare farmers are being reminded to return the forms to their local office.

Minister Killeen said he had issued the reminder as he was anxious that as many REPS 3 payments as possible be made before Christmas. He continued: "The issuing of such payments is, however, dependant on farmers completing and returning the necessary 1C forms which will allow the Department to make the payments."

Meanwhile, Minister of State Killeen confirmed that Minister for Agriculture Brendan Smith would be introducing a Supplementary Estimate for the Department later this week, which will allow the Department to spend an additional 39 million euro on REPS this year.

According to Minister of State Killeen; "This increased level of REPS payments in 2009 will improve the cash flow position of hundreds of Clare farmers and recognises the serious income difficulties being experienced by farmers this year."
