I thank the hon. Gentleman for raising the crucial issue of financing the NHS. Mr. Jackson referred to the period between 1979 to 1997, when expenditure under the Tories went up by 60 per cent. May I remind the House that from 1997 to 2008, under Labour, the budget will be going up by 300 per cent.?
