MR. DAVID DAVIES, M.P., ON THE I BUDGET. IN the House of Commons, in the debate on the Budget, Mr. Davies said he considered it a very fair one in every respect, except the proposal re- lating to the dog tax, which ought to be 10s., in- stead of 7s. 6d. The income tax, in his opinion, was a perfectly legitimate source of revenue. If. unfortunately, we became invoved in a war, he hoped the cost of it would be paid every year, as it proceeded. Indeed, he would not be sorry to see a 2s. 6d. income tax imposed, because he believed by that means the public would be made sick of it, and we should get rid of it all the sooner. Of course, we should beat Russia, but then the strug- gle might be a protracted one; although we should not starve ourselves as much as we should our opponents, who, rieverthelesn possessed great re- sources. But be that as it may, he hoped the Chancellor of the Exchequer would cover the expenses of the war for each year in his Budget.
