Question ref. S5W-01288
Asked by: Michael Russell, Argyll and Bute, Scottish National Party
Date lodged: 7 July 2016

Question

To ask the Scottish Government when it will make an announcement about goose management payments for 2016-17 and any new or developed scheme for goose management on Islay.

Current status: Answered by Roseanna Cunningham on 2 August 2016


Answer

The date for the announcement about goose management payments for 2016-17 has still to be agreed. It was noted at the last National Goose Management Review Group meeting that the Scottish Government would not be in a position to have State Aid approval secured ahead of the new Scheme year starting in October. Therefore, it is likely that single-year Scheme agreements will be needed, following a similar approach to that used last year. The Schemes are expected to have the same budget and levels of financial support as last year.
