BRITAIN'S WAR BILL
SIX MILLION A DAY
England's National Debt Will
Be Near Four Billion Pounds
at End of the Year.
ANNOUNCEMENT BY LAW
London, Feb. 12. The average
daily expenditure of Great Britain is
now 5,790,000, Andrew Bonar Law.
chancellor of the exchequer, an
nounced in the House of Commons
The chancellor said the total ex
penditure since the beginning of the
war was 4,200,000,000.
At the end of the current year the
national debt wonld stand between
3,800,000,000 and 3,900,000,000. Ad
vances to allies and dominions would
be approximately 390,000.000.
The number of applications and the
amount applied for by the general
public for the new loan, the chancel
lor said, were larger than ever before.
The chancellor pointed out that the
total votes of credit for the current
financial year would amount to 1,
950,000,000. He said that was in ex
cess of the estimate of Reginal Mc
Kenna, chancellor of the exchequer
under the Asquith government, and
that the increase was due to addi
tional expenditures for munitions and
advances to the allies and dominions.
The average expenditure had in
creased by 1,000,009 daily as com
pared with the first sixty-three days
of the financial year. There also had
been an increase in expenditures for
the army, but it was proportionate
with the increase in the number of
troops, the army being fourteen times
as large as when the war began.
The amounts asked for, Mr. Law
said, would enable the government
to meet expenses until the end of
May. Of the last vote of credit there
had been an unexpected balance of
In making advances to its allies,
the chancellor continued. Great
Britain considered one thing only
whether it would be in the general
interest, lie emphasized the impor
tance of co-ordination in every field
and that the conference at Rome had
resulted in decision in regard to a
policy to be adopted toward Greece,
which policy was now being followed.
Mr. McKcnua said that never be
fore had such a large credit been
asked at the beginning of a session
and that the government mnst be in
tending to prevent Parliament from
reviewing the expenditures during ihe
coming months, or else the monrv
thus provided should tide the country
over a possible Parliamentary recess
or election. Mr. Law said the ques
tion of a general election hail never
entered his mind.
