CLASS II.-continued.

Vote 3.—TREASURY AND SUBORDINATE DEPARTMENTS-continued.

ExPLANATION of the Causes of Variation between Expenditure and Grant.

A.—The saving was mainly due to the non-payment of salary to a First-class Clerk whose services were temporarily lent to the Natal Government, to delay in filling up certain vacancies, and to the death of a First-class Clerk, the ensuing vacancies being filled up at initial rates of salary.

B and D.—Cannot be accurately estimated.
C.—It is impossible to foresee what enquiries may be necessary. Provision reduced in 1906–7.
E.—The expenditure on Clerical assistance, Typewriting, &c., was less than had been anticipated.
F.—The amount of travelling, &c., which may be necessary, cannot be foreseen.
G and I-Casual variation.

H.—The Fees depend upon the number and nature of the Bills required to be drafted, and cannot therefore be accurately estimated.

K.—The excess is due to the payment of remuneration (100l.) for work on the Statutory Rules and Orders, for which no provision had been made in the Estimate. The provision for attendance of Draftsmen before Committees of Parliament (50l.) was not required.

L.—The saving was due to the retirement of a Principal Clerk.
M and O.-Cannot be accurately estimated.
N.—Casual excess.

P.—Excess due to payments to Boy Clerks for overtime work, mainly in connection with the Registration of Joint Stock Companies.

Q.—Casual saving.
R.—Cannot be accurately estimated.
