He gave a mid-summer economic review and said with the economy and government revenues lu'gher than expected there would be tighter curbs on government spending. He fore- cast a lower than expected budgetary deficit. Mr. Turner attributed rising food prices and the inflation in Canada on international condi- tions from which Canada could not isolate itself. He claimed the major cause of higher food _ prices was high demand andj short supply on the world mar- j ket. He turged when' faced with the Jiigher food prices to take some solace from the fact that ''wages and sala- ries have gone up r.iove in the past year.

''His announcement shows that like the Bourbons he has learned nothing and forgotten nothing from the disastrous pol- icies of his government from 1969 to 1972.
