I assure my hon. and gallant Friend the Member for Knutsford (Sir W. Bromley-Davenport) that I shall not be bringing my remarks to a conclusion just yet. For the benefit of hon. Members opposite who may need this point about small firms spelt out in plain language, I will explain that it is the small firms which have youthfulness and vigour and willingness to take risks, which have the vision of building something big from something small, and which are alone the base upon which this country can go forward in future.
