Despite this rather bland statement of the right hon. Gentleman's future intentions, is it not the case that the present crisis in the motor industry stems indirectly from the catastrophic decline in the exports of motor cars from 73 per cent. in the last year of the Labour Government to 43 per cent. under the present Administration? In view of that fact, will not the right hon. Gentleman change his futile policy of exhortation and laissez-faire.
