I am teaching my grandmother to suck eggs, but I have as much right to speak in this House as my hon. Friend.

I do not agree with my hon. and learned Friend the Member for Northampton that the Government are to be condemned in such an outright manner as conducting Tory policies. I do not believe that the Tory Party would have introduced the National Insurance Bill to increase pensions in the face of an economic crisis, or the Rent Bill, or a Finance Bill which was fought through against the bitter opposition of hon. Members opposite. I do not believe that this Bill is of sufficient merit for my hon. Friends to seek to bring down the Government.
