Total nett surplus of Revenue of the United Kingdom in the four years .. 4,482,686
If there had been no Sinking Fund, no Loans would have been required, as the Revenue of the four years, 1817 to 1820 (to the 5th January, 1821),
hoth inclusive, was £.4,482,686 more than the Expenditure, which ought to have effected a reduction (the 3 per cents being on an average at £.70
£.100) of £.192,117 of Annual Dividend ; and, as £.261,819 of annual charge for annuities and land-tax redeemed has been diminished, the reduction of ihe
annual charge of the Funded Debt ought to have been to the amount of £.453,929 in 1821, whereas the charge has been increased, instead of diminished.

An Account of Interest paid in each Year to the Public for the

Funded and UNFUNDED Debt of the United Kingdom, and for the Charge of Management at the Bank of England, for the four Years ending the 5th January, 1821 (exclusive of the Sinking Fund), as charged in the Annual Finance Accounts.

And taking by estimate the interest on the Exchequer Bills (£.34,728,691), staled as outstanding on the 5th of January, 1821, in the same proportion as £.1,849,219 was charged in 1820 for the interest on £.42,694,882 of outstanding bills on the 5th of January, 1820, the amount of inlerest for the year ended 5th January, 1822,

Making a total charge for Funded and Unfunded Debt of instead of (after deducting the £.453,929 of dividends redeemed and expired), being only £.30,812,672, as it ought to have been, if there had been no Sinking Fund; consequently, a very great loss to the country, and going on at the same rate by the present absord system of the Sipking Fund.
