I am grateful to you, Mr. Taylor. Let me say briefly that we would not want to be associated with the Liberal Democrat policy on transport either. As I understand it, the Liberal Democrats complain that the price of petrol is not high enough.

I do not think that the motion is necessary and it would have been much better if we had waited until after 1 May before starting such deliberations. I hope that, under a future Government, such ritual motions will not regularly be put before Committees.
