moment. I think the general criticism of the noble Lord was, I will not say vitiated, but a little altered, and possibly weakened, by the fact that he seemed to think that the object of the present Government was to inflict as much damage as possible on trade. He attacked us for having damaged trade very much already, and he took this Bill as only a particular instance of the general policy of damage to trade which was inaugurated by a Conservative Government. I think I might leave the subject there. It is not necessary for me to defend the Conservative Government against the charge of desiring the general destruction of trade.
