As I cannot have two supplementary Questions, I address myself only to Question No. 11. Is it not the fact that the Lord President said in Sheffield that the Prime Minister's statement of 20th July contained economic and financial measures which were too drastic? Is that the Prime Minister's view today, and, if so, how does he reconcile it with this morning's publication of a figure of 541,000 unemployed, before we have even entered the winter season?
