Description
Denis Healey’s 1978 Budget speech. He speaks of his time in the post of Chancellor as gruelling, seeing record unemployment and inflation. But now the 7 biggest governments are working together, interest rates and inflation have fallen, and the years of sacrifice are over. His budget includes provision for extra jobs, increased pensions for married couples, free school milk for 7-11 year-olds, and tax cuts to help people at the bottom of the pay scale.
