I have been listening with some interest to the dissertation of the hon. Member for Morecambe and Lonsdale (Mr. Hall-Davis). As I am not at all informed about the economics of the industry and am rather puzzled, I would like to have some further information from those who are informed about it. The impression which I got as a layman was that there was something curiously wrong with the argument. It might have helped us if the hon. Gentleman had told us what were the fortunes of the hotels in which he was directly interested, so that one could see just how serious the situation was.
