Transcript CHAPTER XII. CAN WE PAY OUR WAY? A.—Expenditure. 1. The Costs of War and " Preparedness." (a) If the war ends during 1918 the National Debt will stand at about £6,000,000,000, and the annual interest charge will be about £300,000,000. In addition there will be the annual charge for an adequate Sinking Fund—perhaps fifty millions. (b) War Pensions of all kinds—certainly £40,000,000 per annum. (c) "National Preparedness." The expenditure on the Army and Navy before the war was £74,540,000. We cannot count on any early disarmament, or anv reduction of our defensive preparations, the pre-war strength of the Navy will be made good, and perhaps considerably increased; we shall probably develop "key-industries," '.store necessary materials, and spend large sums upon agriculture. We may reasonably estimate the new expenditure on " Preparedness " at £100,000,000 per annum. Total Norma! Cost of National Defence,, Past and Prospective possibly £500,000,000 per Annum. (d) In order to avoid the risk of being involved in another war, while hampered by a colossal debt, the State mav decide to pay off (say) one-third of its obligations in the nex+ ten years. Is there any way in which this can be done except bv Conscription of Wealth "—e.g., in the form of a levy of 10 per cent, on capital values, payment being spread over the decade at the rate of 1 per cent, per annum? (e) The special expenditure involved in gradual disband- ment, provision for discharged soldiers, and war workers ete may cost us m the first year after the war not less' than £50,000000. Could this be met out of the surplus that would accrue if the war ended even one fortnight earlier than had been budgeted for?
