Dear Agriculture and Rural Development,
Under the right of access to documents in the EU treaties, as developed in Regulation 1049/2001, I am requesting documents which contain the following information:
I am requesting all documents relating to CAP funding to North Lodge Farm, Durham, DH1 3SU, United Kingdom.
I wish for all documents submitted between 2006 and 2015.
I am requesting this as the farm in question, may have fraudulently claimed CAP subsidies. A recent investigation revealed that this farm was not a single property, but is in-fact 3. I need the documents to ascertain if they overstated their arable acreage to you. They have more buildings on the land than submitted which would affect their calculation as less farmland is available. Also, it appears from the limited available public records, two individuals were claiming for the farm at the same time between 2006 and 2009.
This is a public interest case as the farm owner is Prime Minister Boris Johnson's political advisor Dominic Cummings.
