§ 2. Mrs. Renée Short
asked the Secretary of State for Economic Affairs what proposals he has to strengthen his department in order to equip it to plan the economy so as to increase productivity, involve producers in decisions taken by Government, and raise the standards of living of lower-paid workers.
§ Mrs. Short
I was not asking about establishment. Is my right hon. Friend not aware that the way to make his Department the spearhead of Socialist advance that it was intended to be, would be to free it of the Establishment anti-Socialist domination of the Treasury, which is continually giving Ministers outdated economic information on which they are basing their wrong policies? Is he aware that he would have—[Interruption]—full support if he put his foot down?
