Churchill Asks investigation Of Hugh Do/ton's Resignation By HOMKi; JKNKS (United Fr*£* Staff Ci>rrnpondrn() LONDON, Nov. 14. (UP) — Winston Churchill and other ^leaders of the opposition demanded loday an Investigation of Hugh Dalton's unprecedented resignation as Chancellor of the Exchequer for telling a newspaper reporter about his crisis budget before he told the House of Commons. Churchill. conservative party leader, indicated that lie did not believe that Dalton's violation of the rigid cabinet code was the whole reason for his resignation. The Dully Express hinted that It was an engineered dr-al, connected with a cabinet conflict over crisis policy, although It said Iherc was no reason to doubt Dalton's Integrity. The Rnnounccd fads of the ease were: Dalton told a correspondent of the newspaper, (he Star, the in'ain points of his supplementary budget imposing a new $832.000.000 tax program just before he read his budget message to Commons on Wednesday. The Slav was thus able to get the points fo the new budget Into print before Us competitors, which presumably would have allowed alert speculators to make some money. Churchill wrote Dalum, however, that he was sure "then: could not have twcn any dealings as a result of this premature disclosure." Dalton told Commons what he had done late yesterday anil added: "I appreciate that It was a grave Indiscretion on my part, for which I olfer (ler-p apologies to the House." Then he submitted hh resignation. Crippn Tak«* Ovrr He was succeeded as Chancellor of,the. Exchequer by Sir Stafford Cilpps. A* Minister of Economics, Crlpps' control of the nation's economic life had been nearly complete.

It was believed that Crlpjis was at least partly responsible for forcing Dalton to Include the new taxes In his budget. After Commons adjourned last night, Dalton and Prime Minister Clement. Atlloe talked until nearly Midnight at No 10 Downing Street. Daltou. who lives at No. 11'Down- Ing Street, used a connecting door to see Altlee. Churchill said In a' letter to Dalton that he had been told that while no obligation of secrecy had Iwrn Imposed upon the Star's re- jwi'ter, "that certainly srems to ine to have been implicit." Further, he said he was .sure there had been no dealings as a result of the disclosure. Dallon was rxprcled U> make a personal statement lo Commons, and newspapers .said they hoped It would cl»ar up any mystery. Otherwise, they said, the resignation should be Investigated.
