That is fine. Mr. McHugh will know that this legislation would essentially revert the situation to an interpretation of the Veterinary Council that was in place from 2005 to 2018. The increases he referenced happened during a time the criterion was that a non-vet could not own a practice. In that time, did the CCPC make submissions or recommendations to the Veterinary Council or the Government to the effect that that interpretation should be changed?
