Stanley Howard Knowles (Whip of the Co-operative Commonwealth Federation)

Co-operative Commonwealth Federation (C.C.F.)

Mr. KNOWLES:

I will be awfully careful when I start to do that. But the reason they have come back from the Easter recess not quite so sure that controls should be taken off is that in the meantime controls have been removed, as, for example, on the first of April by the Minister of Finance, with the result that there have been increases in the cost of living, and the people back home in some of my hon. friends' constituencies who, a few months ago, may have thought a good song to sing was, "Take off controls now", now know the effect of it and are protesting to their members, even in those Tory constituencies. In other words, the blame for their change of tune is not to be placed on our Tory friends, but on the government for what the minister rightly described a few minutes ago as headlong decontrol.

No, Mr. Chairman. I must see what Hansard says but, as I remember, I said "what my hon. friend describes as headlong".
