Who is entitled when CAP reforms in 2015?

Only landowners who receive a single payment in the 2013 scheme will be automatic for a new set of entitlements when the CAP reforms in 2015.

“The status of entitlements that are leased out for the 2014 scheme year is the subject of discussion with the EU Commission,” said Agriculture Minister Simon Coveney, in the Dáil, replying to Eamon Ó'Cuív, TD. Ó'Cuív had asked how farmers who leased out their entitlements in 2013, and did not claim a single farm payment, would be affected.<
