HC Deb 30 March 1950 vol 473 c58W
62. Brigadier Clarke

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer if he is aware that the present high cost of living is causing great hardship to pensioners and others with fixed incomes; and if he will bear this in mind when he is framing his Budget.

Mr. Gaitskell

The importance of the cost of living to these sections of the community is a matter which my right hon. and learned Friend will certainly bear in mind.
