Member for Gillingham, in terms of whether, at a particular time, because of some Crisis in Our Economy Or Some Difficult Period through which we are passing, we must, unfortunately, use the Purchase Tax as a deliberate weapon to damp down consumption of certain kinds of goods or, as in the particular case mentioned, to free particular commodities or raw materials for a rearmament drive or whatever else may be needed.
