NotesImage 1: See LSE4883 for published cartoon. Until Britain could improve her exports,
said the British government, it was "un-British" to use up goods that had to be bought with
dollars. To remind smokers that this applied especially to them, the tobacco duty was
raised by 50 per cent. After that, cigarettes were not consumed so carelessly. [Caption
