I will give the House the facts. Up to about 1948 or 1949, the programme introduced by the Labour Government was going along and was gradually tapering off. Between 1948 and 1950 the then Government proposed another advance. It was much more limited than their previous programme, but in 1951, on account of the then economic crisis the plan was temporarily stopped.
