The hon. Gentleman must agree that that money is not squandered but is spent properly and wisely on those who are in an unfortunate position because of economic problems that are not confined to this country. Although I regret that the amount spent on unemployment must be so much because the numbers are so high, I am proud that we spend that much in the 1980s and not as little as we spent in the 1930s.
