I did not put any words into the hon. Gentleman's mouth. I referred to the expression on his face, and we can see it.

If the hon. Gentleman thinks that there will be substantial unemployment as a result of these measures, he will recall that it has been the policy of his own party to press for some time for more stringent measures to reduce employment. We do not believe that they will have the effect which some hon. Members opposite seem to expect.
