HC Deb 24 June 1999 vol 333 c462W
34. Mr. Ben Chapman

To ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer what fiscal steps he is taking to ensure economic stability. [87092]

Mr. Milburn

The Chancellor's recent Budget continued to lock in sound public finances and to ensure that our tough fiscal rules will be met. By providing a £6 billion boost to the economy, the Budget is supporting monetary policy and helping to steer a course of stability and lay the foundations for high and sustainable levels of growth and employment.
