Net increase on expenditure for 1897–98,
567,983!. Transport again increased, on
account of the Soudan Expedition and
Manoeuvres, and there was additional
expenditure on Medical Services, Supplies,
and Stores, due to the increase of the Army.
Extra charges due to the South African War,
22,790,000l.; other expenditure, 20,275,398l,
showing net increase on 1898-99 of 179,025l,
due to an increase of expenditure on Vote I.
(additional numbers) and on Vote X.
(Barracks, &c.). Cost of transport was
reduced by suspension of ordinary moves
through the war.
Extra charges due to the South African War,
61,991,000l., and China Expedition,
3,270,000l.; other expenditure, 26,082,544l,
showing net increase on 1899–1900 of
5,807,146l., due chiefly to increased per-
manent numbers of the Army, to rise in
the price of supplies, and to special train-
ing of the Auxiliary Forces, and home
defence measures.
Extra charges due to the South African
War, 62,324,500l., and China Expedition,
1,807,800l.; other expenditure, 28,528,574l.,
showing increase on 1900–01 of 2,446,030l.
mainly due to the increase of the Army,
and to expenditure on “Mowatt” reserves
of stores.
Extra charges due to the South African War,
39,307,000l., China Expedition, 587,900l.,
and Somaliland Expedition, 252,000l.,
other expenditure, 28,716,627l., showing
net increase on 1901–02 of 188,053!., due
chiefly to the pension charges resulting
from the war.
Extra charges due to the South African
War, 3,230,000l. China ol.
393,000l. ; Somaliland, 1,618,000l. ; other
expenditure, 31,487,000l., showing a net
increase on 1902–03 of 2,770,000l., due to
retention of troops in South Africa, and to
increased expenditure on field training and
manoeuvres, works, and the improvement
of the Medical, Educational, Intelligence
and Remount Departments.
Extra charges due to Somaliland operations,
412,000. Other expenditure, 28,483,000l.,
showing a net decrease on 1903–4 of
3,004,000l. due to completion of expendi-
ture on “Mowatt” reserves of stores; to
utilisation of stocks of clothing surplus
after the war; to the reduction of men
and animals in S. Africa ; and to further
receipts from sales of anima's and stores
in S. Africa and China.

Reduction on normal expenditure of 1904–5.
4,000l. Savin, s due to reduction of
Colonial Infantry establishments, dis-
bandment of Garrison Regiment, etc.,
utilisation of more surplus clothing, and
completion in 1904-5 of the “Mowatt”
reserves of Stores, were balanced by
expenditure of 1,478,000l. on re-arma-
ment of Horse and Field Artillery and
growth of charges for Service Pay, Army
eserve, Loan annuities and non-effective
services.
Net decrease on Estimate 1905–6, 17,000l.
1,187,000l., provided for re-armament of
Horse and Field Artillery. Savings by
reduction of Establishments and on Sea
Transport, balance by increase of Army
Reserve (220,000l.), partial exhaustion of
surplus stocks of clothing, increased pro-
vision for Rifles and Small Arm Animu-
nition, and growth of non - effective
charges.
Net decrease on Estimate 1906–7, 2,036,000l.
488,000'. provided for re-armament of
Horse and Field Artillery (d. crease
699,000l.). Other savings by reduction
of Establishments (men and horses), partly
balanced by increases under Army Re-
serve, Works and non-ettective charges.
