Description
Liberal Party leader David Steel responds to Denis Healey’s 1978 Budget, which he describes as a Liberal-influenced budget. The Liberals welcome help for small businesses, and profit-sharing, but feel Healey hasn’t gone far enough on income tax; they intend to propose amendments at the committee stage of the Finance Bill. Steel discusses the effectiveness of the Lib-Lab pact. He plans to unwind by taking his son to see the film Star Wars. Male interviewer not identified (poss. Ed Boyle).
