Will the hon. Gentleman, who has made such a personal and direct criticism, inform the House whether last year and this year, under what he terms a better management, Jaguar, with all the advantages of the American exchange rate and a much more buoyant home and overseas market than when I was chief executive, produced as many cars as it produced when I was chief executive and made as much profit in real terms and whether the warranty claims per vehicle have been reduced? If the hon. Gentleman can do that, he may be entitled to make criticisms that otherwise I would ask him to withdraw.
