The hon. Member for Newark (Mr. S. Shephard) has made a very moderate, restrained and constructive speech. I would not pretend that I agree with every word of it, but no one can fail to note that he was addressing himself earnestly, sincerely and constructively to the problem with which the House is faced today, and that he was practising his own doctrine that recriminations would not take us very much further. I take it, therefore, that he is not going to vote for this Amendment, which is quite a different affair.
