The Pamphlet Collection of Sir Robert Stout: Volume 30

He made general statements regarding the expenditure but there was no direct attempt made to show that the Government had been guilty of extravagance. This he thought must be taken as the strongest evidence of inability on the part of the Opposition to point out any defects, and it must be taken for granted that the estimates were brought down framed upon an economical basis.
