§ 44. Sir Michael McNair-Wilson
To ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer what distinction he draws for policy purposes between price rises and inflation.

To ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer when he last met the Governor of the Bank of England to discuss policy on reducing inflation.
§ 48. Mr. Nicholas Winterton
To ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer what effect upon the annual rate of inflation he expects the introduction of the community charge to have.
