Government extends TAMS 1 Farm Safety Scheme closing date for farmers where work has already started

Farming, Funding

I have received confirmation from the Minister for Agriculture, Food and the Marine, my colleague Simon Coveney T.D., that there will a degree of flexibility to the time allowed to complete projects under the TAMS 1 Farm Safety Scheme. This will apply where work has already commenced and Minister Coveney has extended the closing date to the 14th September 2015.

The Government is aware that in certain cases where work has already started for the Safety Schemes, Dairy Equipment Scheme and Sheep handling Scheme, that farmers are experiencing severe difficulties meeting the deadline of the 31st August. The Minister has allowed extension in these cases to the 14th September 2015 to facilitate allow farmers to finish the work and submit their paperwork.

A new extensive TAMS scheme is now up and running which I strongly encourage all farmers in Meath and Westmeath to examine the possibilities it offers.
