This subject ought not to take up too much of the time of the House. It is too sordid for that. [Laughter.] It is sordid, and I will make myself plain. I do not believe that this piece of legislation has anything to do with the national interest; it has to do with the fact that the road hauliers have been invited to subscribe to the Conservative Central Office funds. Right hon. Gentlemen opposite can easily disprove that. Let them publish their Accounts. Let us see where they get their £1 million, and then we shall be able to tell.
