Will the hon. Gentleman just let me finish the point?

The hon. Members for Huddersfield (Mr Sheerman) and for Stalybridge and Hyde (Jonathan Reynolds) made passionate speeches about manufacturing. Mr Cunningham celebrated the presidency of George Bush, which was somewhat surprising. My hon. Friend Sir Bob Russell called for a tax on television rights relating to football matches, which is not a suggestion that I shall be following up immediately.

Now I will give way to the shadow Financial Secretary.
