My hon. Friend is making an important point. I wonder whether he heard the Prime Minister interviewed by John Humphrys on the "Today" programme last week. The Prime Minister said that he recognised that demand was outstripping supply, but completely ignored Mr. Humphrys when he suggested that immigration may have played some part in that. Does my hon. Friend think that the Prime Minister is in denial in respect of the points that he so rightly raises?
