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?

Spending cuts (to reduce costs - to not spend so much money)remain the main plank of the party's defence policy.
By reducing its cover price (A cover price is the price listed on the first (or cover page) page of a newspaper), the newspaper is trying to squeeze rival papers out of the market.

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

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.
