It is the aim of this paper to notice as simply as possible
the changes produced by the War conditions in the revenue
and expenditure of Ireland: as these are exhibited in the
annual returns popularly known as the "Treasury White
Paper." There are always, of course, two White Papers;
but one of them is a preliminary computation which leads
up to the other. The principal White Paper is that entitled
"Revenue and Expenditure (England, Scotland,
and Ireland)," of which the latest issue is for the financial
year ended March 31, 1919. (H.C. No. 163 of 1919, price
2d.) The other carries the clumsy title, "Imperial Revenue
(Collection and Expenditure) (Great Britain and
Ireland)"; it is mainly a computation by which the Revenues
as actually "collected" in Great Britain and Ireland
are adjusted so as to estimate the "true" Revenues
really paid by the inhabitants of those two islands; but it
also prints a retrospect of the figures for both Revenue
and Expenditure over past years back as far as 1819.
