I imagine that for the long term, our guests want to know now that projects can continue beyond 23 October next year. I suggest it would be appropriate that the committee write to processors, the IFA and all those bodies. The kind of work being done by Embrace FARM is priceless. The sum involved is a pittance when you consider the anguish and distress families go through, and €300,000 was mentioned. Not just the Minister and the Department but farming organisations should really get on board and support our guests as well. I do not know if is appropriate for the committee to get involved.
