What Liverpool will do is an interesting question. I am sure that you, Mr. Deputy Speaker, would rule me out of order, were I to seek to answer, much as I would wish to. Should the Government decide to provide time for a debate on Liverpool, we should be delighted to participate. More to the point, if the hon. Member for Liverpool, Mossley Hill (Mr. Alton) believes that Liverpool has such a fine record over the last 10 years, I suggest that the Liberal party uses one of its Supply days, with which it is amply provided, to mount a full debate on the record of Liverpool, which has brought the council to such a state of financial crisis.
