France Prime Minister Francois Fillon hands out a note at the end of his speech during a press conference at Matignon, in Paris, Monday, Nov. 7, 2011. Fillon announced a new round of austerity, including a freeze on the president's and government ministers' salaries and a cap on the increase in social security benefits. France will cut its deficit by another euros7 billion ($9.6 billion) next year as slow growth threatens President Nicolas Sarkozy's promise to balance the country's budget.
