This dataset contains €457 million of export milk subsidy payments made between January 2001 and December 2009. It was requested from the Department of Agriculture. The dataset contains the name of the country to which it was exported, the date of export, the weight and the amount claimed.
I also sought the names of all companies which received subsidy payments, but this was refused under Section 27 (1) (a) and (b) of the FOI Act (Commercially sensitive). I disagree with this decision and will be appealing.
This request was carried out partly on behalf of the good guys over at followthemoney.eu.
I have also included subsidy payments (about €22m) in relation to sugar over on Google Spreadsheets.
