"I think that there will not an end to subsidies, and the reason why is because what happens in our farms is too important for the rest of the world. [It is] important in terms of the stability of our food supply, but also important in terms of the impact of what we do on our environment. So, whether we have control over what happens, or incentives for what happens for environmental benefits, or incentives for the reliability of our food supply, I think it's going to be in the tax payers' interest to support farming and therefore subsidize it. So I don't look for that to end."
