Would my hon. Friend not agree that the decision taken by the Scottish Trades Union Congress yesterday to give a full backing to Labour and a Labour Government appears justified in the light of the figures he has given? Can he tell the House whether the Prime Minister has been informed about those figures, since he is addressing the Scottish Trades Union Congress today?
I am not sure about the last point but perhaps I could send my right hon. Friend a telegram. Just to point the contrast with £181 million for 1968–69, I should point out that in the last full year for which hon. Members opposite have responsibility, 1963–64, the figure was only £111 million.
