I agree with my Friend 100%. He asked a strong question at the seminar I attended a few days ago. He said, "Show me the bankers, the producers and the feed men who have gone bust. You cannot show them, but I will show you the farmers who are going bust every day." He was not liked for that, and I understand that his invitation to a great dinner was withdrawn. So he did not feast at that table.

I beg to ask leave to withdraw the motion because of the procedural difficulty. I do so reluctantly, but that is the way it has to be.

Motion, by leave, withdrawn.
