10.—(1) This regulation applies to an applicant under these Regulations who was eligible for and was granted a payment under the 1999 Regulations.

whichever is the lower.

(6) In the event that the forage area of the holding is reduced by more than 25% in the course of the Scheme Years 2001 to 2003 when compared with the forage area declared by the applicant in 1999 for the purpose of the 1999 Regulation payment, the Scottish Ministers will, in respect of–

(a)the Scheme Year that the reduction in forage area first exceeds 25%; and

(b)in each subsequent Scheme Year,
