Parliamentary circles thought i more probable Vincent Auriol minister of finance, would seek tc peg the franc at 21.94, a slightly lower rate, in order to aid foreign trade and prevent further straii on French finances. In a trio of measures which reviewed file entire scope oJ France's deficit-ridden accoun'. sheet, Premier Blum proclaimed a sweeping revision in his financia policy.
