The Pamphlet Collection of Sir Robert Stout: Volume 62

Government Income, Exports, &c

Government Income, Exports, &c.

Lest, however there should still lurk any such ideas, I will very shortly refer to the revenue and expenditure of the Government of the colony, and to the total amount of our imports and exports. For the year ended December, 1890, the total revenue was (omitting anything below thousands, and deducting a balance of over £500,000 in hand at the beginning of the year) £4,208,000, the expenditure being £4,081,000, a balance of over £594,000 being carried forward. The total value of our imports for 1891, as supplied specially to me by the Hon. the Premier, was £6,503,849, while our exports reached the vast total of £9066,397. Surely I may now safely pass away from such dry but needful details to consider some of the wondrous industries which go to swell this latter amount, which, during the current year, will most likely exceed £10,000,000.
