I am not sure what judgment my predecessor made, but I am sure that the House will understand that I have no plans to memorise every road or rail project in the country, however large or small, simply so that I can respond instantaneously to any comment in the House.

I note again the ambivalence of opposition parties in power in local authorities towards doing what their spokesmen in the House keep talking about.
