I do not wish to interrupt my hon. Friend, but that is not my case. I did not say that the Chancellor of the Exchequer should not budget for a reduction of the Debt, but my point was that the amount was excessive. The Chancellor of the Exchequer should certainly budget for a considerable reduction of debt, say £200,000,000 or £210,000,000, but £230,000,000 is excessive.
