Friday 12th June 1981

Nasty reference in The Economist to a rare burst of effectiveness on Rail Elect [Electrification]. Probably written by Mark Schreiber.

Monetary reform going ok according to Sparrow - interest rate movements were right.

PT Bauer in evening - discussed govt. spending. He clearly thinks it is quite out of control and I have no counter argument. It is. He thinks student grants and AID are prime targets.
