The hon. Member cannot say "For you," if he accepts the fact that the standard of living of everybody in this country rose by 40 per cent. It was not all for the benefit of my hon. and right hon. Friends; some of the hon. Member's hon. and right hon. Friends also benefited. This Socialist sophism is not the answer to our problem. The Government are not capable of solving any of our problems, and I recommend that they move out or move over and let somebody else take over who knows how to deal with these matters. I am convinced that my hon. and right hon. Friends, in the past 13 years, have proved that they can run the finances of this country, and it is because we have no confidence in the Government's handling of our finances that my hon. and right hon. Friends will divide the House this evening.
