    Background: HOW HIGH A PRICE WILL THE AVERAGE FRENCHMAN HAVE TO PAY FOR THE BIG PAY INCREASES WORKERS EXTRACTED FROM THE GOVERNMENT LAST MONTH ? THE ANSWER WILL PROBABLY BE KNOWN TOMORROW (WEDNESDAY) WHEN THE FINANCE MINISTRY IS EXPECTED TO ANNOUNCE AUSTERITY MEASURES IN THE WAKE OF JUNE'S RUINOUS INDUSTRIAL AND SOCIAL STRIFE. TOBACCO AND SPIRITS ARE THOUGHT TO BE THE PRIME CANDIDATES FOR TAX INCREASES.

    A 10 PERCENT INCREASE FOR EXCISE DUTIES ON FOREIGN AND DOMESTIC TOBACCOS AS WELL AS SPIRITS IS ANTICIPATED. THERE MAY BE A FIVE TO TEN PERCENT INCOME TAX SURCHARGE FOR FRANCE'S TOP 500-THOUSAND SALARY EARNERS AND CAR REGISTRATION WILL PROBABLY GO UP.

    THE AUSTERITY MOVES ARE AIMED TOWARDS NARROWING THE 1968 BUDGET DEFICIT FROM THE ANTICIPATED ONE THOUSAND ONE HUNDRED MILLION POUNDS STERLING TO EIGHT HUNDRED AND SIXTY MILLION POUNDS STERLING.
