From 1921 to 1925 the
revenue from special war taxes was about $535,000,000 more than it was from 1917 to 1921. What attempt was made by the government during that time to economize with a view of reducing taxation and the cost of living? The minister spoke of economy. Well, the government had an increase in the revenue there, from that source alone, of over $500,000,000 in those four years. I fail to see what attempt was made to reduce the taxation of the national debt at that time.
