The Government are knowingly and consciously encouraging the import of goods costing £1,040 each to the balance of payments in place of goods costing £100 each, but in the circumstances of this fatuous legislation, this is a consequence which we must probably face, since additional complications would arise under the Amendments. It proves once and for all that, when we are trying to handle the legislative programme of this Government, the best thing to do is let it alone and allow it to do the maximum possible damage to the economy.
