In that event, will the right hon. Gentleman kindly explain to the House how the hon. Lady the Joint Parliamentary Secretary to the Ministry of Pensions and National Insurance said a few weeks ago in Birmingham that 50 per cent. of the working class of the country were not pulling their weight? If, as is obvious, there were no statistics on which that statement can be made, should not stupid statements and generalisations of this sort by members of the Government cease?
