I am grateful to the hon. Gentleman. I will wager that I have marginally more to contribute to the exchange between us than he has to offer in reply. The hon. Member for Workington (Mr. Campbell-Savours) referred to white Wednesday.

Member for Croydon, Central (Mr. Davies) tell the House whether, in his judgment, re-entry to the extended recession mechanism would assist or hinder home owners?
