Might I be allowed to put one further question? The proviso which an hon. Member put in at the end of his words just now, I am sorry to say does not altogether please me, because I have had it indicated to me pretty strongly in this letter, to which I have referred, that there was, a short time ago, a definite difference of opinion between the Government and ourselves, and, therefore, with all respect, and I hope the hon. Member will not think I am saying it offensively, I do not think that I quite like the proviso. I would rather like the Financial Secretary, if he prefers my Amendment to my hon. Friend's, to accept my Amendment. Let that go in now and then we shall have an earnest that this matter will be dealt with on the Report stage.
