HC Deb 27 October 1955 vol 545 cc40-1W
54. Mr. Iremonger

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer what steps he proposes to take to ensure that people living on fixed incomes benefit from the ever-increasing prosperity of the community as a whole.

Sir E. Boyle

In his Budgets of 1952, 1953 and April, 1955, the Chancellor included measures designed specifically to help those living on small investment incomes. But my right hon. Friend has it constantly in mind that the best way of helping people living on fixed incomes to obtain their proper share of the country's prosperity is to safeguard the stability of the national economy.
