Reverting to my right hon. Friend's answer to my hon. Friend the Member for Derbyshire, West (Mr Scott-Hopkins), does my right hon Friend accept that the oil crisis, unfortunately, is not likely to be a nine-day wonder? Does not my right hon. Friend feel that there is a real danger of Britain being squeezed out in the Middle East oil auction between Japan and the United States? Does not that emphasise the importance of our getting together in Europe so that we speak with a European demand and a stronger voice?
