I thank the Minister of State. It is welcome news that there is keen interest from the Government in that grey area. The LEOs and Enterprise Ireland are doing fantastic work. The supports, the level of support and the mentoring they give are important. However, there is a fear factor, as Minister of State said, among people who are in the middle category. They realistically do not fit into either category, as such. In some instances, they do, although it depends on what services they provide. Certainly, I look forward to working with the Minister of State on this. I come from a small business background, so I have a keen interest in this area. I have been helping a number of companies which fall within that category. I thank the Minister of State again for his response.
