HC Deb 02 March 1971 vol 812 c389W
Mr. Arthur Lewis

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer whether the Government's official estimate of a continuing increase in the cost of living of 9 per cent. during the current year takes account of its policy and actions to reduce and control inflation; and whether he will make a statement.

Mr. Higgins

The Government have published no estimate of the increase in the cost of living during the current year.
