|Message||Article 1, we have no real objections, but have no issues with the private sector generating electricity either (same for article 3). Article 2, we would prefer the power nets were maintained by the regions - as our nation\'s regions are separated by seas, that would make it more flexible and more resilient. Article 4, we do not think this is something that needs regulating. Article 5, we are not opposed to quotas, but don\'t see this as an industry that would benefit from nationalisation. Article 6 we are definitely opposed to - industrial hemp production does not need special regulations.|

|Message||Article 1 shall be kept. Artlicle 2 is now changed. Article will be kept. Article 4 farms produce lots of different produce over the regions and by local government enforcing size restrictions competition can be maintianed f wanted as can that range. |
Article 5 is something we feel has to be done. The sea is one of our major resources as a nation. And we have plans to start producing chitin and chitosan products. This polymer is a naturally occuring in crab/lobster shell and since we fish these anyway we can then recycle the shell waste. A nationialised industry will cut back costs and allow more chitin based products to be produced. Chitin is also important because it is used in a wide range of goods and by exploiting this resource fully by nationisation we gain an important export.
Article 6 will be removed.
