The hon. Gentleman represents part of the city of Liverpool. His city council is making such demands upon the national Exchequer that no Government could possibly meet them. I hope that that will not result in a grave crisis in the city of Liverpool later in the year. If the hon. Gentleman wishes to help to solve the housing crisis in Liverpool, he should persuade the city council to end its policy of buying co-operatives and instead to encourage co-operative housing development, which is what many of the people of Liverpool want.
