Gentleman's election address, it is only fair that he should be free to refer to mine, and to refer to those of us who, during the 1964 election, as he said, on the basis of the information available to us then and in good faith made statements about the reduction in mortgage interest rates which we have implemented as far as we reasonably could. [Laughter.] The hon. Gentleman perhaps was not in the House when we introduced the mortgage option scheme.
