Vote. 4.—HoME OFFICE—continued.

ExPLANATION of the Causes of Variation between Expenditure and Grant.

A-The excess is due to (1) additions made to the Staff during the financial year; and (2) the grant of gratuities for special duties to a Junior Clerk, a Staff Officer, and a Second Division Clerk.

B.-The excess is mainly due to the expenses incurred by two officers of the Department as delegates to the International Conference held at Berne in 1905, with regard to certain labour questions.

C.—The expenditure under this Sub-Head is subject to considerable fluctuations.
D–The payments in respect of repatriation expenses proved considerably less than had been anticipated.

E-This surplus is mainly due to two causes —(1) Savings were made in consequence of the retirement during the financial year of a Superintending Inspector and four Inspectors, and the death of an Inspector; and (2) the expenditure for local offices and clerks was less than the sum provided.

F.—Casual variation.

G.—As the expenditure depends upon the number of accident reports received, the Estimate is necessarily only approximate.

L–The Estimate did not make sufficient allowance for the reduction of expense which has resulted from improved methods of inspection.

M.–Casual variation.

years.
