•— Revenue Receipts Up by i 1581000,000. PROSPECT OF A BIG BUDGET SUR I PLUS. There axe indications that the Chancel- lor of the Exchequer's revenue estimate of L305,014,000 for the financial year which ends on March 31 will be largely exceeded. If the weekly average income from Customs is maintained till the end of the ..r there will be an increase under this head alone of nearly £ 3,000,000. The total revenue up to January 22 was £202,693,000, or nearly £ 58,000,000 more than in the corresponding period of last year. Despite the restrictions on the sale of drink the excise income continues to be very large. So far there has been re- ceived E48,266,000, which is over E17,000,000 more than in the same period of last year, and only £ 6,500.000 below the estimate of the full 12 months. Death duties have increased owing mainly to the large number of wealthy officers who have fallen in the war, by over £ 4,000,000. A very welcome windfall has come to the Treasury und er the head of ''Miscel- laneous receipts." The original estimate was JBl,700,000, increased in the revised financial statenjent to £ 2,430.000. The actual receipts to date are £ 5,623,910. About £ 70,000,000 has yet to be col- lected from income tax payers. The pay- ments so far ansount to L46,486,000, or about E20,000,000 more than last year. WHAT NEW ZEALAND HAS DONE. I The splendid rally of New Zealaaid to the Mother Country has been the sub- ject in the House of Commons. Mi". Amery asked the Secretary for the Colonies if he could give an estimate of the total number of men that will have been raised by New Zealand by the end of June next, including those sent away and those in trairling in New Zealand. Mr. Bonar Law The number of men already sent by New Zealand up to the present date is approximately 34,000. By June it is estimated that another 15.000 will have left New Zealand, making a total of about 49.000. In addition, it was estimated that 12.000 men would then be in training, making a grand total of approximately 60.000 men.
