I fully agree. I shall now turn to Mr. Feeney from ACA. The fast-tracking of planning is a recurring theme. Mr. Feeney might touch on fast-tracked planning and TAMS applications for slurry storage on farms. The VAT reclaim facility he talked about makes absolute sense.

How is the ACA running its campaign in conjunction with other farm organisations to drive the importance of this? It makes total sense. I am here to tease out and pull out the issues because I am conscious that this is a public forum and public meeting. Other policymakers and farm organisations are listening in. I ask the representatives to briefly touch on those two issues.
