The party conference season is almost over, and so is the honeymoon traditionally accorded to a new government. When Parliament resumes later this month the political battle will be on in earnest once again.

' We start with the economy because this remains the key,' said the Conservative Party's election manifesto. What is the economic philosophy that will inform the government's strategy? What sort of measures can we expect from Mr Heath and his team?

Analysis attempts to answer these questions in a discussion between two former ministers and an academic economist. RT HON EDWARD DU CANN , MP
