This week, we discover that the disposable income of the poorest is falling, that child poverty is now rising, and that more than 5 million of the lowest paid will be hit by the Chancellor's tax con. Mr. Robinson, who used to be the Chancellor's Minister, said during the Budget debate that the Budget will be "hurting many people" and urged him to think again. We know that the Chancellor has complete contempt for all his colleagues—does that really include the hon. Member for Coventry, North-West?
