I thank the Chancellor for giving way. He is being most generous. I note that the Chancellor has been reading from the “Labour’s Future” report. I wonder whether he has seen the executive summary, which states:

“Labour lost because voters didn’t believe it would cut the de?cit. The Tories didn’t win despite their commitment to cut spending and the de?cit: they won because of it. The Tories were trusted to manage the country’s ?nances, Labour was not.”
