HC Deb 30 June 1964 vol 697 cc179-80W
25. Mr. Willis

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer what specific measures he has in mind to reduce the prices of food, housing, clothing, fuel and light, tobacco, and alcoholic drink, as a contribution to the acceptance of an incomes policy.

Mr. Boyd-Carpenter

Our policies are designed to combat inflation and to encourage healthy price competition in a free market, which we believe to be in the best interests of the consumer and, therefore, the wage earner. Acceptance of an incomes policy is a major factor in our success in achieving faster growth combined with greater price stability and full employment.
