Amendment 2 Schedule 1, Item 17, page 9

 

5.              This clause inserts an additional explanatory note at the end of the definition of premium component referring to the additional clause 30A.

 

Amendment 3 Schedule 1, Item 17, page 17

 

6.              This clause amends section 13 of the Bill to allow for an entity or entities who may form part of a partnership to be taken to own the entire proportion of the livestock for the purposes of determining a significant proportion of the livestock .  This will ensure partnerships are not disadvantaged by having to own significantly more of the livestock than the intended 25% or more.

 

Amendment 4 30A Adjustment of eligibility for payment rights - abnormal market milk pool distributions

 

7.              This amendment provides for the adjustment of eligibility for payment rights to recognise abnormal distribution of market milk pool distributions in 1998/99 to producers delivering milk through pooling systems.  Pooling is intended to ensure all producers receive an equal proportionate share of market milk payments.  Where this did not happen in 1998/99, the DSAP Scheme may make provision to adjust payment rights as if an equal proportionate share of market milk payments were made during that year.
