Mr Stuart Holland: ...of the dramatic devaluation of sterling in the mid-1970s and other factors. But one factor that has been neglected by the Government is monopoly pricing. The trend to big business is now so marked in the British economy that when only two or three firms dominate any individual market they can, to a considerable extent, compensate for falling sales by raising prices. That mechanism takes...
Mr Ian Lang: ...as impossible—extensive reporting of the speech to which he will treat the House later this afternoon. Perhaps I can help the hon.

Sir David Amess: ...piloted in Basildon and Billericay.

Mark Francois: Will the right hon. Gentleman give way?
Mark Francois: The Secretary of State mentioned Pakistan. I am sure that he and the whole House agree that General Musharraf's Government in Pakistan have been particularly robust in their support for the coalition's action against international terrorism. He will also be well aware that Pakistan itself is a nuclear-armed state. Can he reassure the House that the British Government and their allies in the...
