As ever, it is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Mr. Gale. I hope that we will give you an easy time over the next half hour. I am not sure that I would express the same sentiments to the Minister, because I have a few hard questions for him. However, I am grateful for the opportunity to bring before the House the hugely important issue of the difficulties faced by the textile sector at the moment, particularly in my constituency, and I shall raise issues to which I hope the Government will respond.
