Suburban Home Economics club, Epsilon Alpha France Curbs Dollar Budget To Economize PARIS, IJV-France slashed her dollar spending program for the 1951-52 fiscal year by 40 per cent In an economy move Wednesday. This means she will buy less from the western hemisphere. Following Britain's examples, Finance Minister Rene Mayer told the cabinet that France would spend only about $500,000,000 for imports in the period ending next June 30. The 40 per cent cut actually represents a second reduction in France's dollar imports this year. A finance ministry spokesman explained that the plan for imports from the dollar area for the period July, 1951, to June, 1952, originally had fixed the total at $1,014,000,000, which corresponded to the real needs of the country. This figure was reduced the first time to $825,000,000 because of the French deficit In balance of payments with the dollar area. It finally was brought down to in the announcement after the cabinet meeting Wednesday. A week ago, Chancellor of the Exchequer Richard A. Butler announced Britain's new Conservative government would cut all imports by about 10 per cent, saving that country the equivalent of nearly 1 billion. The high cost of rearming is the main reason for both cuts, and others which European economists are sure will come elsewhere on the continent.
