Has the Minister seen the letter, which appeared in yesterday's Financial Times, from more than 20 leading industrialists expressing their dismay at an arm's-length policy towards Europe? Is he aware that today's Financial Times carries two letters: one from the Secretary of State for Trade and Industry, saying that the industrialists were entirely right; another from the hon. Member for Stafford (Mr. Cash), saying that it was all empty rhetoric and bogus fears? With which of those Conservative views does he agree—or will he pretend that he agrees with both of them?
