HC Deb 21 January 1947 vol 432 cc1-2W
64. Mr. Osborne

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer, since every wage and price increase is to the detriment of the wage-earner who supported the National Savings movement, if he will investigate the possibility of prohibiting any further increases in wages and dividends for a period of two years and institute an official campaign for lower prices.

Mr. Dalton

No, Sir, the hon. Member's suggestion is not practicable.
