the rale of aM.(W.09i dslly. He estimated
that the total daily xpendtture during
the currency of the new credit would fc
not leas tha A3.0oa.000. for th reason
that a fVe war extended It area. Oreat
Britain' financial obligation to the al
lien would Increase.

th premier referred to th reconstruc

Mr. Asquith said he had decided slowly
