We have an economic downturn. We cannot afford to put the economy into even more of a downward spiral, which is what will happen if government mandates increased costs to industry - especially the export industries. Agriculture is one of those industries which would suffer from input costs which cannot be passed on. I would ask those who want large targets, are they prepared to pay back the banks on behalf of the small businesses in agriculture which would be so badly affected? If they are, let them put their money on the table.
