The revenues of the country, we are glad to say,

are in a satisfactory state. Eleven days before the end of the financial year Mr. Lloyd George was eight millions ahead of his estimate for the whole year. The Customs receipts exceeded the estimate by 22,296,000, and Excise by £2,095,000. Income Tax was £3,500,000 in excess of the estimate.
