§ 26. Mr. Ian Lloyd
asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer what new measures he is proposing to reduce the threat to social cohesion by (a) stringent measures to control inflation and public expenditure and (b) the continuing decline in the internal and external value of the £ sterling.
§ Mr. Robert Sheldon
The Government's policies are directly aimed at restoring and strengthening Britain's industrial performance, on which our economic prosperity depends. We do not accept that such policies represent any threat to the social cohesion of the British nation.
