§ MR LABOUCHERE (Northampton)
Before we separate for the holidays, perhaps the Prime Minister will gratify the somewhat legitimate anxiety felt on this side of the House, and answer a question which has the merit that it can be answered by a simple "Yes" or "No." When the right hon. Gentleman spoke I did not quite gather whether his views on fiscal policy were those of the Colonial Secretary, and, indeed, it is not clear that he knew precisely what that policy was. Since then we have had a valuable and interesting speech in which the Colonial Secretary has made his meaning clear. My question is are we to understand that these were the views of the Colonial Secretary in his individual and personal capacity, or were they the views of the Cabinet?
