Has my hon. Friend noted that the Government's failure to propose raising the rate support grant for Derbyshire this year by more than four times the rate of inflation has prompted the Left-wing leader of the county council to describe this action as "shades of a Hitler regime"? Is this not a despicable comment and an insult to the many Conservatives who fought against the Hitler regime in the last war?
