Up to the 4th instant, approximately £11,960,000 and £2,600,000 had been received in subscriptions to the first and second issues of 1918 Treasury Bonds. The latter figure does not include Bonds issued in exchange for five per cent. Exchequer Bonds, 1920. which are estimated to reach a total of £2,500,000. Between the 11th November, 1918, and the 4th instant, £136,030,000 was received into the Exchequer on account of savings certificates, and £51,250,000 was issued from the Exchequer for repayments.
