STOP PRESS ITEMS.
V, WAR FINANCE.
111 'in i- . i||[l ' WELLINGTON, January 5. Asked by a. ' Post' reporter as to the possibility of a war tax being imposed, the Prime Minister said : "We are obtaining the money required for our share of tho war expenditure at a low rate and on very easy_ terms. When tho war comes to an end it will be necessary to make provision not only for the payment of interest, but for a sinking fund to pay off the war loan in a certain number of years. For that purpose, so far as I am able to judge at present, additional revenue will bo necessary, but we have not yet reached the stage of considering tho means by which it will be raised."
