After allowance is made for the postponement of receipts, the actual increase of expenditure over the Budget estimate is £133,000,000. I invite the House to consider how that increase is made up. War pensions, war bonuses, extra police grants, expenses due to the strike, account for 144,000,000. Loans to Allies £32,000,000.
