  • Description

    Warning that Britain's economic crisis is deepening because of a wages explosion, opposition Conservative leader Edward Heath suggested on Monday (30 September) that he might take strong measures with the British trade unions if he wins the coming general election on 10 October.

    At a constituency meeting at an appropriately named public house -- the "Heath Park" -- in Hemel Hempstead, Mr. Heath emphasised his warning with some statistical evidence. He also said that if a sharp rise in earnings was not accompanied by increased productivity then a steep rise in prices -- and therefore the cost of living -- was inevitable.
