Is there not some inconsistency in what the hon. Gentleman is saying, bearing in mind his ceaseless campaigning against the wages councils, obviously with the intention of reducing the income of those on the lowest possible wage? I would use a word other than "inconsistency" were I allowed to do so. Does the hon. Gentleman agree that if the Government decided not to increase unemployment benefit to return it to its real value he would not go into the Lobby against that decision?
