HC Deb 24 July 1980 vol 989 c342W
24. Mr. Alton

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer what steps he is taking to reduce inflation; and if he will make a statement.

Sir Geoffrey Howe

The rate of inflation will be reduced by continuing to control the rate of growth of the money supply; these policies will work more quickly, and with the minimum of unnecessary unemployment if wage negotiations settle at realistic levels.
