HC Deb 06 March 1995 vol 256 cc71-2W
Mr. Austin Mitchell

To ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer what is the relative priority attached by Her Majesty's Government to price stability and to maximising living standards.

Mr. Aitken

The objective of the Government's economic policy is to promote sustainable growth and increasing prosperity. Permanently low inflation, combined with sound public finances and structural policies to improve the long-term performance of the economy, is the best way to achieve this objective.
