All new Members can be forgiven for misunderstanding what Question Time is about. The reception that my Ministers and I—I am sure that this is also true of the main Opposition party—have received when we have gone round the country discussing pensions is very simple. People want us to take the matter seriously and to have stable and secure solutions for the future. Above all, they do not want a party political knockabout. If the hon. Lady learns that lesson, she will have learned something worth while for the future.
