I entirely agree with the hon. Gentleman. Many years ago he and I used to exchange from opposite sides of the House agreement, not disagreement, on this question. Some of the countries which are hardest hit by the oil crisis and the shortage of food are those which are already suffering deprivation and premature deaths, on the one hand by drought and on the other hand, tragically, by floods. We have been going into this very fully, and I will consider the question of a ministerial statement.
