In view of the fact that it is the policy of the Conservative Party to protect the weak and that the answer which the right hon. Gentleman gave previously was far from satisfactory, will he bear in mind that this section of the community has suffered more than any other under six years of Socialism? Will he therefore take steps to reconsider whether it would not be wise to appoint a committee, so that every aspect of these people's position might be looked at with a view to its amelioration?
I am very glad that the hon. Lady has had a crack at the other side. In all seriousness, I would say that it is very difficult for the State or the Government of the day to reach every case. For example, if persons or families do not pay Income Tax it is impossible to relieve them by Income Tax relief, and it is difficult to reach every section. I would remind the hon. Lady that the benefits of the Budget, taken as a whole, and with the aid of family allowances and other things, do good among all sections of the community.
