That must have kept the right hon. Gentleman pretty busy. Although the Tory vote in Walton was the lowest Tory percentage vote this century—a new record—is it not of some consolation to the right hon.

It was a great comfort to us that all Conservative Members who were asked supported the Conservative candidate in Walton. I understand that that was not the case for the Opposition.
