Gentleman except to say that, as he acknowledged, to allow one special case is to open the door for many others. The more...

Mr Peter Trew: I have listened with great interest to the right hon. Members for Newton (Mr. Lee), who gave us examples from his wide experi- ence of industrial relations which had worked well with the willing consent of both sides.

I hope that he will forgive me if, in view of the time, I do not follow up his remarks. At this time in our history there must be two over-riding aims in British housing policy. The first, which can be accomplished sooner,...
