Explanatory Note

(This note is not part of the Regulations)

These Regulations make amendments to–

(a)the Highlands and Islands Agricultural Programme; and

(b)the Rural Diversification Programme,

as a consequence of the necessary restrictions in place as a result of Foot-and-Mouth disease, which has meant that many farmers have not been able to complete projects grant assisted under these programmes in the time scales specified in the particular grant approval.

The Scottish Ministers have agreed to delay the dates for completion of such projects. In order to do so, these Regulations extend the end dates for the making of claims for assistance under these programmes.
