10.—(1) Subject to paragraphs (2) and (3), where at least 10% of the livestock units of the applicant, calculated in accordance with regulation 9(4) and Part I of Schedule 4, are cattle, the unadjusted payable area calculated in accordance with regulation 8 is to be adjusted in accordance with this regulation and the following formula—

Where—

  • P1 is the payable area;

  • P2 is the unadjusted payable area calculated in accordance with regulation 8; and

  • Z is the hectare multiplier contained in the second column of Schedule 8 corresponding to the proportion of livestock units (calculated in accordance with regulation 9(4) and Part I of Schedule 4) which are cattle contained in the first column of Schedule 8.

(2) Where the number of sheep used to calculate livestock units for the purposes of regulation 9(4) and Part I of Schedule 4 is lower than—

(a)the number of sheep used to calculate livestock units for the purposes of the Scheme 2006 payment; or

(b)where an applicant did not receive a Scheme 2006 payment, the number of sheep used to calculate livestock units for the purposes of the Scheme 2005 payment,

and the hectare multiplier contained in the second column of Schedule 8, corresponding to the proportion of livestock units (calculated in accordance with regulation 9(4) and Part I of Schedule 4) which are cattle contained in the first column of Schedule 8, is higher than the hectare multiplier established for the purposes of the Scheme 2006 payment or, the Scheme 2005 payment as appropriate, then that hectare multiplier can only apply for the purposes of the Scheme 2010 payment, the Scheme 2011 payment, the Scheme 2012 payment or the Scheme 2013 payment if the number of cattle used to calculate livestock units for the purposes of regulation 9(4) and Part I of Schedule 4 is greater than the number of cattle used to calculate livestock units for the purposes of the Scheme 2006 payment or the Scheme 2005 payment as appropriate.

(3) Where the hectare multiplier contained in the second column of Schedule 8 to be used for the purposes of the formula in paragraph (1) is unrepresentative of the usual enterprise mix of the applicant, due to the culling of stock on the land in question in the context of the control of an outbreak of an epizootic disease—

(a)during 2009; or

(b)where the applicant did not submit a single application or claim less favoured area support in or prior to 2009, the first year of application,

the applicant may request that the Scottish Ministers determine the hectare multiplier contained in the second column of Schedule 8 to be used for the purposes of the formula in paragraph (1).
