HC Deb 19 March 1985 vol 75 c800

In this Budget, Mr. Deputy Speaker, I have reaffirmed the Government's commitment to the defeat of inflation through the maintenance of sound money. I have made further radical proposals for taxation and national insurance, and abolished outright a third tax. In collaboration with my right hon. Friends the Secretaries of State for Employment, for Education and for Social Services, I have proposed a coherent and wide-ranging set of measures to promote new jobs. I commend this Budget to the House.
