CLASS II.-continued.

Vote 11.—BoARD OF AGRICULTURE AND FISHERIES-continued.

ExPLANATION of the Causes of Variation between Expenditure and Grant.

A.—The saving is mainly due to the post of Assistant Private Secretary to the President remaining vacant and to changes in the personnel of the office consequent upon death and retirements.

B.—Cannot be accurately estimated. The saving is chiefly due to economies effected by a reorganisation of the Inspectorate. Less has been taken for 1906–7.

C.—The Expenditure under this Sub-Head is necessarily subject to fluctuation, and cannot be estimated with exactness.

D.—Over estimated.

G.—Over estimated.

H. 1.-On the appointment of Lt. Col. Prain as Director, in December 1905, the Treasury sanctioned the retention of Sir W. Thiselton-Dyer, as an Advisory Officer, until the end of the financial year, with remuneration of an amount equal to the difference between his existing salary and the pension to be awarded him for that period. The Expenditure for Temporary Technical Assistance was larger than estimated for, and the House Allowances of Two Foremen were increased, with the permission of the Treasury, from 10s. to 15s. per week. These were the chief causes of the excess.

H. 2.-Over estimated.
H. 3.-Over estimated.
H. 4.—Over estimated.

I.—Under estimated.

ExTRA REMUNERATION.

The Head of the Survey Branch was paid 50l. for work performed for the Redistribution Committee, and an Inspector received a gratuity of 100l. for acting as Secretary to the Fruit Culture Committee—both were paid out of the Vote for Temporary Commissions. Two permanent Writers were paid 871. 18s. 1d. and 75l. 0s. 3d., respectively, for engrossing and copying documents of which the cost is repaid by the persons interested.

The Surplus of 5,430l. 7s. 8d., shown on the Account of the Vote “Board of Agriculture and Fisheries,” for the year ended 31st March 1905, has been surrendered.
