Cripps Says Profits Tax to Be Hiked Move to Offset Inflation Effect of Pound Slash London, (ff)— Sir Stafford-Cripps raised Britain's profits tax by 5 per cent Tuesday to offset the inflationary effect of cheapening of the pound. ' './ The tax on profits now is 25 pe.r cent. Cripps told the house uf commons he is increasing it to 30 per cent. The chancellor of the exchequer also warned British business men: "If there is any further breaking away from the voluntary limitation of dividends I shall consider myself at liberty to introduce legislation to restrict dividends in the next finance bill." Opens Debate Cripps opened the crucial debate in the house of commons on the devaluation of the pound. He was fortified by a labor party caucus which, informants said, decided to stand behind the government on the currency issue. The laborites met in caucus for 2 hours and 20.minutes this morning preceding the opening of the government's parliamentary test on the currency questions. Before the meeting there had been some speculation that some leftwing members of the party, openly hostile to price rises resulting from the pound devaluation, might desert Prime Minister Attlee's government on a vote of confidence to be taken at the end of the 3-day emergency debate. Possibility Avoided That possibility now appears to have been avoided. The informants said the laborites reached a general agreement to support the Attlee cabinet in its fight for survival. Defeat of the government on the motion of confidence would require the prime minister to call a new election immediately although the labor party's 5-year term does not expire until next July. Leaders of the liberal party decided in another meeting to have their 10 members of the house of commons vote solidly against the government. The party said: it might even propose..a motion of censure after hearing- what Sir Stafford Cripps, chancellor of the exchequer, has to say.

"It's the industrial know-how of making the bombs that is important. "The Russians just don't have the technical abilities nor the facilities to stockpile bombs.
