I thank the noble Baroness for that recommendation. I am not familiar with the mill. The department is concentrating its efforts on new technologies associated with tidal stream and wave energy. Certainly in that area much is happening in the industry to progress the innovation that is happening already in this country-we are a global leader. I will consult the department on the idea that the noble Baroness put forward and come back to her as soon as I can.
