Mr Ruffley made a fair point about the possibility of airborne transmission. Does my hon. Friend Mary Creagh agree that there may be connectivity with nurseries to which seedlings were imported? It is quite possible that, over a year, there was airborne transmission to trees, in the way that the hon. Member for Bury St Edmunds suggests, from those imported seedlings. That is not incompatible with his point.
