HC Deb 02 August 1965 vol 717 c247W
Sir C. Osborne

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer if, in addition to his cuts in Government expenditure in order to make the nation live within its income, he will also make use of the 10 per cent. regular which could increase Purchase Tax all round; how long his present cuts will be tried before this and other harsher restrictions are imposed; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Callaghan

I have nothing to add to the statement I made in the House on 27th July.
