I thank those who contributed. The committee began the conversation on TB last February. The farm organisations, including those present, requested that they would come before the committee. We decided at the time that we would wait until the interim report issued. Following the wait, we now see exactly whether progress has been made. The departmental officials were in earlier. We will bring them in again as soon as we can to see if we can get more answers from them on issues that remain unanswered today. We have a clearer picture of the questions that need to be answered and how to progress to the next stage. I hope we can hold such a meeting in the coming weeks to progress matters. I thank the witnesses very much for their attendance today. It is very much appreciated.
