It is a great business and we want to see the industry protected. Anything that this Government or any other Government does to enhance that would be welcome. Nevertheless, as Deputy McGrath has said, we will not give up our way of life or tradition for anybody. Some people think it is a good idea to put glass in front of dogs as a form of protest but that is surely outrageous behaviour. It shows that some people will stop at nothing to get their way. We will not allow that.
