I hope that the hon. Gentleman one day will get over this love-hate relationship for the Paymaster-General. I really think that he has now had a good run on this. He has not got very much out of it. I feel that the rather limited time available for Questions could be better used dealing with Questions which seek information in reply to which information is given, as with Question Number 2 this afternoon.
On a point of order. Some time ago, Mr. Speaker, you in your wisdom reproached me for using too many adjectives. The hon. Member for Brixton (Mr. Lipton) used four.
The hon. and gallant Gentleman is right, except that I did not reprove him. I pointed out that a supplementary question containing unnecessary adjectives was actually out of order. I am of opinion that the same consideration applied to the question just asked by the hon. Member for Brixton (Mr. Lipton) and that it was out of order on another ground, but I thought that on the whole we could get on quicker if I left it alone.
