Inflation Curbs
OKd in Britain
LONDON. Feb. 22 UP. —A two
day debate on Britain's financial
position has ended with a 325-!
259 vote of confidence in the
Eden government’s new anti-in-;
flation moves.
The victory for the Conserva
tives came in the House of Com
mons last night after a still op
position Labor Party attack on
Chancellor of the Exchequer
Harold Macmillan's first eco
nomic steps. The vote followed
party lines.
Opposition leader Hugh Gaits
kell charged the Conservatives
have lost confidence in their own
economic policies and asserted
the new anti-inflation measures
will not provide a solution to
Britain's financial problems.
Conservatives spokesmen de
fended the new measures as nec
essary to prevent the depletion
of gold and dollar reserves, pro
tect the value of the pound and
halt rising prices at home.
Inflation troubles have plagued
Britain since World War 11.
British employment is higher!
than ever, but the soaring rate of j
home buying has cut into the
campaign to funnel more British
goods into overseas markets.
Mr. Macmillan clamped rigid'
restrictions on Installment buying
in an effort to boost exports.
; Heavy cuts in national and local!
government spending also were
ordered. Government subsidies
also were reduced, raising the
price of milk and bread.
