The Exchequer Receipts and Issues Return for March 20th show

that the total receipt* for the week ended on that date were £6,813,000, inoluding £6,251,000 from revenue. Though the figures compare unfavourably with those of 1908 owing to decreases in Estate and other duties, the receipts have so far improved the situation that only £7,446,000 remains to be collected by March 31st in order to make up the total estimate (2153,080,000) of revenue for the financial year.
