Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - December 14, 1916, Lethbridge, Alberta TlttmSDAY, OEGRMBEH M, 1010 THE LKTIIBKIDljIv DAILY HKRALD PAOKNINIi London, Doc. Law said in the House of Commons thiB afternoon that no proposals for peace litul yet been received by the British government from tho central powers. He added that the entente fillies required adequate reparation for the past and adequate security for the future. "Something has happened of which I think it necessary that I should say o IJonar Law continued. "Naturally the papers are full of peace proposals from Berlin. Up to now no proposals have reached His Majesty's government. It is obvioue', that under thene circumstances no member of the government can make any statement on the subject." Considering the nature of this coun- try and how entirely its energies had been devoted to peace, Bonar. Law ivent on to was marvelous to consider how it had been organized for war. No more striking proof of the vitality of the country from the industrial-point view was found than In the enormous extent by which the output, of munitions had increased during the last year. Referring to the increase in loans to the allies and dominions, the chancellor said it would he gratifying to the house io know it has gone largely to Great Britain's allies, the dominions having heen able to finance their expendi- tures. These advances were just as much war expenditures, he said, as the amount expended on British troops. In regard to the bill introduced in order to avoid elections in case of new ministerB who are members of trie house, the chancellor expressed the hope house would allow It to pass through all its singes.

Phillip Snowdon urged that the full day be given for the discussion of Ibo speech before tho neichatng of Chancellor Von Hethmann Hollweg, at which there were cries of "No" from all parts of the house. The chancellor said the total amount of votes of credit plnce the outbreak of tb-3 war was ,E includ- ing for extra administra- tion expenses. In moving the vote of credit lie said that, assuming the rate of expenditure was the same as at the present, tho vote would carry until February 24. The total tor the financial year would be The budget estimate of the financial year, lie said, was exceeded by Loans to allied governments amounted to dally. He said that Ihe daily average ex- cenditure of Great Britain in the war had reached Mr. Law said the actual expenditure had ex- ceeded the estimate owing to the In- crease in munitions and additional i loans to Great Britain's allies and to her dominions. The chancellor said: "Financially, we cannot hope to go on indefinitely ''on the present scale, but we can go on long enough to make sure that it will not be from financial-'causes if we fail to secure victory."
