Government Capital Expenditure
Opposition Day — [3rd Allotted Day]
Christopher Huhne (Eastleigh, Liberal Democrat)
The hon. Gentleman is describing the evolution of our policy over a period that has seen a dramatic worsening of the economic outlook, not only in this country but more broadly. The great Liberal, Lord Keynes, pointed out that, when circumstances changed, he changed his mind. Sadly, that does not seem to be true of the Conservatives, who always seem to say the same, regardless of the circumstances.
