Mr William Greenwood: I would like to say a few words about the reduction of the Super-tax and the alteration of the Death Duties.

Mr William Greenwood: I do not wish to misrepresent my hon. Friend. I listened very carefully to his speech and with very great enjoyment, and I agreed with a great deal of it.

Mr William Greenwood: The hon. Member who has just sat down seems to be very sure that he knows his own mind.

I think the Chancellor of the Exchequer will be able to give sound reasons for the proposals he is making. When the hon. and...

Mr William Greenwood: The most that Free Traders ask for is always that they can buy in the cheapest possible market, irrespective of whether or not the people, who otherwise would have made those goods, are unemployed.
