I have a further brief question. My understanding from the research I have done is that there was a reluctance to guarantee supply to some of the people who were willing to invest in the proper machinery in this country. Would the industry have heard of that? While what Bord na Móna is doing is appreciated, I understand that the gear it has is not fit for the silage plastics. It is basically like a monkey and an elephant, in that it is not fit for purpose.
