I want to indicate to the House and the country that, in our view, these measures have not been brought forward to assist the national effort. I submit that no case was made out this afternoon that either of these proposals will improve the efficiency of these industries. They are brought before the House by those who finance the Tory Party in order to recover their privilege and their power, and, in due time, the country will know what to do with a Government that places profit and privilege before the nation and its interests.
