§ Mr. Crosland
On a point of order. The House understands that a Minister in answering supplementary questions may occasionally, quite unintentionally, mislead the House on a comparatively minor point. This afternoon the Minister for Local Government and Development, in answer to a supplementary question, said that wages had been going up as fast as land prices. Since wages are now going up at the rate of only about 7 per cent. a year, whereas land prices are going up by about double that amount and in some parts of the country by as much as four times that amount, may I give the Minister an opportunity to correct what was outrageously inaccurate?
