I am grateful to the hon. Gentleman for drawing that useful information to the notice of the House. Though I am interested to hear about it, I should say that it is difficult to include slurry in the fertiliser subsidy, since the contents of slurry vary so much, and the subsidy is based on fertiliser content. Economic inducements are also a difficult matter, but I would point out that we grant-aid such things as slurry tanks and slurry ponds.
