I want to be entirely helpful to the Minister. I recollect that the Mail on Sunday reported that the hon. Member for Bromsgrove apparently told the Chancellor, with respect to the granny tax:

“You may have done the numbers, and it may look neat and tidy to the number-crunchers in the Treasury, but you haven’t done the politics. This just won’t work, you must drop it.”

Is that the view of the hon. Member for Bromsgrove?
