COMMONWEALTH REVENUE Falling Off Probable MELBOURNE, Today. [Newspaper Article] — News — 3 August 1923
COMMONWEALTH REVENUE Falling Off Probable MELBOURNE, Today. Dr. Earle Page, the Federal Trea surer, is not disturbed by the fact that his estimate of revenue for July has been expected by a substantial sum. Dr. Page explained yesterday that he did riot expect an immediate drop in Cug toms receipts. Imports during July were always heavy.

He expected a falling off later in the year, and it was for that reason he had estimated - that the revenue from Customs this year would be about £3,000,000 less than 1922-2?

Tucked away in North parade, facing the Queen's Wharf sheds, is an anti quated single-storey brick structure which in the early days of Port Ade laide served...
