Certainly stabilisation of prices is affected by this Motion, and the right hon. Gentleman himself mentioned it in his speech. What we are complaining about is subsidised foreign imported wheat. Hon. Members opposite say that that and other aspects of the problem can be dealt with by stabilisation. I want to know what their stabilisation policy is, what the machinery is, and how they propose to carry it out. I have been trying to induce the right hon. Gentleman to introduce his Bill. If he will only lay it on the Table, all parties will be able to see it. Why is he afraid to do so? I venture to suggest that it is because the Bill does not exist, that it has not been drafted, but has merely been used as an election cry, and that it is not intended to be brought before this Parliament at all.
