The Revenue for 1919-20 was higher than the previous year by �2,645,000, the general Revenue Ivas better by �918,000, the railway Revenue by �1,586,000, and the state Coal mine by �141,000 the expenditure avas larger than that of 1918-19 by �2,761,000, tie general expenditure was higher by �770,000, tie railway expenditure by. �1,850,000, and the state Coal mine by �141,000.

It Avill he seen that in the last ten years the interest Bill Lias gone lip by about �1,280,000. Tho increased Public indebtedness is Only one Factor in the larger interest Hill the. Other being dealer Money. The average rate of interest now payable is approximately 10/ per than it Ivas ten years ago.

Be gratified to Lea Iier trat a tend to impose. Now taxation. Atten Tion is drawn to the fact that Al though the government has made in creased provision for the Extension of our educational facilities esp Bially Diu ing the last three year who h includes treatment of our cach ing staff in respect to their saxes has generally increased Tho Ron nera Tion of our Public servants am also substantially increased its Rede option fund contributions made const arable Iuteri est confessions to returned soldiers and expended huge sums on school buildings and other works taxation in this state has not been increased Dur ing the last five years. I might add the government has redeemed a sub Stantial amount of its deficit Bonds and intends again this year to appropriate portion of the surplus Revenue from last year to the same purpose. Loan liability. In our recent �0,000,000 loan con version London the worlds financial Centre and our own australian Banks gave. Marked evidence of their Confidence in the securities of this state. That Victoria credit in Enig Lahd stands second to none in the British Empire is undoubted. I might Point out to Horn members that our London loan liability i s to Day nearly �6,000,000 lower than it was at the Date of federation. At that Timo London held 89 per cent of our Bonds to Day it holds but 43 per cent. This Means in effect that now roundly 57 per cent of the interest of our indebtedness is being paid to our own victorian citizens. Growth of expenditure. Hon. Members will see by the figures that our expenditure on Gene ral account and on railway account has increased considerably. I would How Ever in this respect ask Hon. Members to Realise the. Pressure which they along with the Public and the press bring to Bear on the government for increased services. Lin regard to health matters Frosh activities arc urgently wanted. Expansion in our education system in it s Prim Ary secondary and technical aspects is constantly urged. New schools Are demanded and when erected must be staffed. The number of mentally afflicted does not get less but grows apace. Elioso unfortunate people have to to provided for. All this Means Money Ami Whon honorable members press Lor expenditure in these and Many other directions it is As Well for them to remember the wherewithal to meet such expenditure must be provided. The railways. Regarding Tho railways the govern ment desires to intimate to members that the re classification Board set up by parliament is now finalising its award respecting Shorter hours Ambet Ter working conditions for the employees. It has also before it a Fresoli claim for anew Basic wage the government has no Means of knowing what these decisions when arrived at will Cost the country. It however in tends to impress on the new chairman of the railway commissioners and his colleagues that such extra expense As May be incurred through the decisions of the railway re classification Board should As far As possible to met out of economies effected in the depart ment. The states Outlook. The Best mows this pc budget state ment will contain is that owing to the Welcome Rains throughout our state the prospects of a Bountiful Harvest were never brighter. Current prices for Wool wheat and Dairying products were never better and the possibility is that still higher prices May Horea lived Avlin. The seasons product is for Sale. This alone warrants a very full Confidence in the help primary production will give to Tho Stato in. Its pre sent need. The coming Harvest. Although exact figures Aro not yet available As to the actual area under wheat on a reliable estimate it is anticipated that the area will exceed 3,000000 acres As Lillo Over 2,000,000 last year. The minister of agriculture with the Wisdom of a Man Khz owing his Job fortunately for our state travelled about he preaching to the Farmers sow _ More i wheat. It must be Gratifying indeed to him to see what sound Lucs lie was on while engaged in this task. Authorities anticipate that the yield per acre this year will to higher than Over in Tho history of Tho state and if so the 45 or 50 million bushels of wheat which will be garnered will yield a monetary return.
