§ Q36. Mr. Teddy Taylor
asked the Prime Minister what are the major priorities of Her Majesty's Government in the remainder of the present Parliament.
§ The Prime Minister
As I said during the Debate on the Address on 3 November, we shall continue on the consistent course that the Government have followed since taking office: the restoration of honest money and sound finance; the control of public borrowing, lower interest rates and lower inflation; a realistic link between earnings and output; the creation of conditions in which Britain will become competitive again; the introduction of private capital into the public sector; freer and fairer world trade; replacing monopoly by competition; the extension of home ownership; an unrelenting war on crime; and a determination to strengthen our defences and to stand up for British interests throughout the world.
