MR. LLOYD GEORGE'S FOURTH BUDGET, 1912-13.

April 2, 1912.

THE figures of this budget shewed, at last, a return to more normal conditions. The expenditure for the past year had amounted to £178,545,000 as against an estimate of £181,284,000, a saving of £2,639,000 excluding supplementary estimates of £555,000.

The revenue had reached £185,090,000, or £3,469,000 more than the estimate, for which excise (£2,562,000) and income-tax (£504,000) were principally responsible. The result was the largest "realized surplus on record"
