HC Deb 16 January 1986 vol 89 c648W
17. Dr. Mawhinney

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer what discussions he has had with United States officials, since he last answered questions, about the United States budget deficit; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Lawson

I welcome the moves made by the United States Administration to reduce their budget deficit, but it is clear that further progress is necessary.
