Agriculture Minister Michelle O'Neill, has announced the same rates for the 2013 Less Favoured Area Compensatory Allowances Scheme as in previous years.

The Minister said: "Despite continued pressures on my Department's budget and a reduction in the value of the euro, I can now confirm that for payments issuing in 2013, the rates will remain at the same level as they have been for the past three years. I know that these payments are hugely important to our hill farmers and it was a priority to me to ensure that these rates were not reduced."
