Ordinary revenue consists of the general tax, which is estimated at 8,187,000,000 yen and which shows a decrease by 2,558,000,000 yen compared with that of 1944 - 1945. Local taxes to be collected are estimated at 165,000,000 yen, which shows a decrease of 99,000,000 yen. Stamp duty is estimated at 272,000,000 yen, while the amount of special revenues consists of a special profit tax amounting to 705,000,000 yen (decrease by 1,954,000 thousand yen). No income is expected from bond issues. Last year we issued 11,400,000,000 yen worth of bonds. Special revenues such as profits from monopoly enterprises, taxes on printing and so forth will amount to 942,000,000 yen (a decrease of 1,245,000,000 yen). Items showing increase are fees paid for utilization of national property, which is estimated at 19,000,000 yen, and miscellaneous revenue of 1,227,000,000 yen, an increase of 888,000,000 yen.
A drastic cut in auxiliary expenditures was put into effect and except for expenditures of the Imperial Household, the Department of Justice, and the Department of Education, the curtailment in expenditures realized by administrative readjustments will be just about cancelled by an increase in the salaries of Government employees.

The famous medicines of JAPAN have been declared an effective collateral security for imports. Our usual annual production of the basic medicines is as follows: 37,000,000 kilograms of inorganic medicines, 26,700,000 kilograms of synthetic medicines, 28,700,000 kilograms of, vegetable medicines, 170,000 kilograms of internal medicines, and 700,000 kilograms of vitamin medicine.

Drug manufacturing companies are trying to use their stocks of medicines as well as their factories so as to meet the people's demand. The TAKEDA Drug Manufacturing Company (TAKEDA SEIYAKU) of OSAKA is the first to resume its former business. The famous and most valuable medicines are now being manufactured, and will soon be shipped.
