Budget Resolutions and Economic Situation
It should not, however, be thought that this will be a one-sided affair. We will turn our attention to the employers, also. There must be many company directors who still have qualms about using their shareholders' money to support the Tory party. We shall pursue them with confidence. We also intend to set an example as the biggest employer in the country. We shall keep down the salaries of teachers not in private schools, of doctors and dentists not in private practice and of Service personnel. These, and many others, are tied by agreement to the level of comparable earnings outside the public service. Only in this way will we be able to restore the sanctity of trade union agreements.
