Now, after Customs and Excise and Inland Revenue, I turn to other revenue. I count on £50 million this year from the motor vehicle duties, the same as last year. I count on million from wireless licences, an increase of £1 million. The sale of surplus stores should yield £95 million this year, as against £156 million last year. The main work of our disposal machine has now been done, and it is, very naturally, running down; the bulk of the stores have been disposed of very efficiently. I expect £55 million, as against £59 million last year, from the trading activities of State Departments—mostly from the Raw Materials Department of the Board of Trade. The total of these items of other revenue is therefore £211 million.
