All things considered, a normal budget of seems to be a. con- imate. Indeed, it j seems to be inescapable. The oalv way of reducing it is in economiz- ing oa wha: must be regarded as normal peace-tims expenditures. All hope of stabilizing the national outlay "at millions, which was the common expectation only a few months ago, is gone. The path to smaller national budge: is now hard one of economy. How difficult wHl be is ap- parent- when the nature of the in- crease in exoendirures is examined. Economy is always possible. But it is mos: easily attainable when the government is free to spend or to save. What has hanpened to the national budget since 1939 is that a vas: increase occurred in wha: may be termed statutory ex- which are authorized by law and which ordi- narily do no: come under tha scru- tiny of parliament. The interest .on the public debt is now aeariag and wffl soon pass S50o millions per vear, must be paid. Children's allowances are, statu- tory and the only way a reduction could be made would be by an' amendment to the act. Old age pensions are statutory and the proposed increase will be by legislation, thus removing item from the economy oae. War pensions will be another such item. Subsidies to the provinces, sub- sidies for lower freighs rates aad so outstanding fact about the budget of tomorrow will be that the money will be so to speak, automatically.
