No, that is not my contention. My contention is that at a time of national emergency there are national considerations which must override these kinds of individual considerations. I do not think that hon. Members opposite would disagree with that contention. They might claim that this was not a national crisis, but they cannot seriously disagree with the contention that if there is a national crisis the sort of considerations that I have been describing override these more specific ones.
