Description
George Gale interviews an unidentified male (possibly Environment Secretary Anthony Crosland?) in which he describes the rise in inflation, and the reserve statutory legislation which has been introduced. He claims the country is in an appalling mess, and something must be done. The new legislation has provided him with the power to cut off money from councils, should they break the wage agreement.
