Alert me about debates like this

Mr. H. Wilson:

Is the Prime Minister not aware, however, that in the speech referred to the Chancellor stressed the need for an incomes policy and that the Prime Minister, whose speech we did him the honour of studying last night, and on five other occasions, has stressed only wages restraints? Assuming that this is not a Freudian slip repeated six times, would the right hon. Gentleman tell us whether he accepts that with an incomes policy there must be parallel policies in the matter of profits and rents? If so. will he tell us what plans he has to institute a complete reversal of Government policy in these matters?
