  • Description

    A smiling Chancellor of the Exchequer, Heathcoat Amory, arrived at no. 10 Downing-street, Apr 2, and imparted secrets of his Budget - to be presented Apr 4 - at a special meeting of Britain's Cabinet, London.

    Members of Parliament are expecting Mr. Amory's Budget speech to be shorter this year as he has advanced from 5 p.m. to 4 p.m. the time-limit on Budget-day withdrawals from bond of such dutiable goods as tobacco, wines and spirits. He usually begins his speed at about 5.30 p.m.

    As he left Downing-street after the meeting, he was asked: "Is Britain going to be cheered up by the Budget." He replied with a smile " I wonder, I wonder."
