I will ask one question before I call members. There is no doubt that TB has cost farmers and the industry a significant amount over many years. We have previously planned to have TB eradicated by certain dates, and a significant amount has been spent since those dates were put in place. The latest date to be put in place is 2030. Is that date achievable? I ask the representatives of the IFA to respond first, followed by the ICSA.
