HC Deb 18 March 1982 vol 20 c179W
Q8. Mr. Latham

asked the Prime Minister what progress is being made in achieving the Government's objectives for reducing inflation.

The Prime Minister

As my right hon. and learned Friend said in his Budget Statement, inflation has almost halved since the spring of 1980. It should be in single figures during the current year, and lower still in 1983.
