I thank the Minister for his very comprehensive response. It is probably not an issue for TAMS II but it is one that we have to consider in the future. When TAMS was announced in 2015 the low emissions spreading was not taken up by farmers but it is the biggest issue they talk about at the farm gate now. It is amazing how priorities change over the lifetime of a scheme. I am sure the new scheme will have different priorities and maybe when they are being considered there might be an opportunity to consider this.
