A final supplementary question, Mr. Speaker. The hon. minister's policies are just the opposite. He is following the policies of the Mad Hatter in Alice going through the looking-glass.
I want to ask the minister if he will bring in a budget immediately which will state the government's fiscal policies to deal with the country's needs in the face of these high interest rates and the very high increases in energy prices his government is promoting and agreeing to, or is he going to continue on a course of vagueness and evasiveness indefinitely, a course which he has been following and the government has been following for the past five months?
