Does my right hon. Friend know that only last week the chairman of Chrysler United Kingdom Ltd. confirmed that my right hon. Friend was one of the Ministers closely involved in the Chrysler agreement? As he has recently had time to purchase an expensive blazer with gold buttons and to play bridge with members of another place, will my right hon. Friend now find time to put on public record his unique contribution to the Chrysler deal, so that all of us may know—?
On the subject of Chrysler, I have nothing to add to the reply I gave to the hon. Member for Oswestry (Mr. Biffen) on 19th January. If my hon. Friend has not come across that reply, I shall be very happy to furnish him with a copy. As to one of the more amusing and characteristically inaccurate flights of fancy on the front page of the Morning Star, I do not think that is of the direct relevance to my official engagements that you might wish, Mr. Speaker.
My reply related to official engagements. I hope that hon. Members are not under the impression that my official work for today consists of gratifying the more innocent curiosities of colleagues in the House.
