    meaning+spending cuts +cover price

    Spending cuts remain the main plank of the party's defence policy.
    By reducing its cover price, the newspaper is trying to squeeze rival papers out of the market.
    will you please tell me the meaning of the parts in bold type?
    Does a newspaper have a cover?

    Does a newspaper have a cover? Yes, it is called the cover page.

    Re: meaning+spending cuts +cover price

    When not referring to the price, most people refer to it as "the front page" of a newspaper. A big news story which is very important is called "front page news". However, the price is still referred to as the cover price.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
