Transcript GREAT BRITAIN AFTER THE WAR. 79 2. The Costs of Civilisation. - The Consolidated Fund Service (including the old National Debt charges, Road Improvement Fund, Local Taxation Accounts) and Civil Services (including Education, Old Age Pensions, Labour Exchanges, Insurance) cost the nation, in the last complete financial year before the war (1913-14), £92,197,000. (a) Education.—Cost before the war: From National Exchequer, £18,717,000; from Local Rates, about £11,000,000. If we desire to carry out the educational programme foreshadowed in Subject XL, we must at least double our expenditure on Education. Taking four-fifths, instead of two-thirds from national sources, we ought to put the future central expenditure at £50,000,000 per annum. (b) Health.—We have to make good the ravages the war has inflicted on our population. How much will it cost the Exchequer to encourage child-bearing by preventing it from having almost penal consequences in the household of the thrifty artizan, minor professional and lower middle classes? To make sufficient provision for all needy mothers before, during, and after child-birth? To bring to an end the present fearful slaughter of infants? To prevent physical and mental defects appearing in our school-children? To add inches to the height and chest measurement, and a stone or more to the weight of our adolescent boys and girls? To endow research, build hospitals, make a more national use of the medical profession? To extend and transform National Insurance? To give every town and village clean air, efficient drainage, pure water, and adequate supply of light and heat? Shall we say an extra £20,000,000 a year—given perhaps largely as Grants-in-Aid to the Local Health Authorities? (c) Housing.—How much will it cost the nation to rehouse all those sections of the community now living in houses that by universal admission are not fit to live in? Suppose we provide for a Special Capital Outlay, within the first four years of Peace, of £250,000,000, one-fifth of which, or £12,500,000 a vear, will need to be Free Grant to the Local Authorities. (d) Old Age Pensions.—If these are increased, even merely to meet the higher cost of living, the nation must find a e> > further £5,000.000 ay year or more.- (e) Universal Insurance Against Unemployment and a policy of actual Prevention of Involuntary Unemployment (casual, seasonal, or cyclical) by the manipulation of the necessary public work, the undertaking of afforestation, land develop-
