Over the twelve months beginning July 1, 1967, no one can be entitled to a minimum increase

The Government now exercises vast power to control wages and salaries. ' Free collective bargaining' is suspended for the second year running and may even have gone for ever.

on GAMBLING

Since the Gaming Act of 1960 Britain has become the gambling centre of Europe and ' chips with everything ' has taken on a new meaning. Recent court cases have cast doubt on the legality of the games played and prompted a new Gaming Bill. Can gambling clubs survive if gamblers are really given an even chance against the bank? Might not tighter control drive clubs underground and so strengthen the protection gangs?

Is this the normal high-spirited behaviour of young people who simply want larger grants and more say in affairs? Or do the charges, the marches, the apparent hooliganism signify a burning desire for a new look in a world short of responsible sovernment and racked by animosity and war?
