Perhaps the hon. and and learned Gentleman will allow me to intervene now. Since he refers to the gold reserves will he say how they stood then compared with how they stand now after seven or eight years of this Conservative Government? Secondly, since the hon. and learned Gentleman, in the quotation which has inspired this very moving speech, was referring to employment and production, will he now give us the comparative figures of the rate of increase of production at that time and the present time, and also of the level of employment at that time compared with what it is at present?
