Mr. Isaacs

As the answer contains a number of figures, I will, with permission, circulate it in the OFFICIAL REPORT.

Mr. Thomas

Is my right hon. Friend aware that according to the Question on the Order Paper, I require only three lots of figures?

My hon. Friend may want only three lots of figures, but to give him a full answer necessitates eight sets of figures.
