B.—Surplus, 4911. 4s. 6d. The amount paid during the year for Law Charges was much smaller than was anticipated.

C.—Surplus, 464l. 9s. 6d. Due partly to changes in the Staff of Inspectors and Assistant Inspectors and partly to the fact that the expenditure can only be approximately estimated.

D.—Surplus, 96l. 5s. 1d. Some of the items of expenditure under this Sub-Head were smaller than in previous years.

E.—Surplus, 1s. 6d. Casual variation.
F.—Surplus, 8l. 14s. 9d. Slightly over-estimated.
G.—Surplus, 960l. 7s. 2d. Due to vacancies and changes ir the Audit Staff.

N.—Surplus, 440l. 6s. 3d. The extent to which journeys by these Inspectors are required varies in different years, and cannot be accurately estimated.

P.—Surplus, 437 l. 12s. 10d. The expenditure under these Sub-Heads depends to a large extent upon the

degree to which Smallpox is prevalent during the year, and owing to the

comparative freedom from the disease it was not necessary to spend the

R.—Surplus, 771. 12s. 7d. . Due partly to the Assistant Inspector not having been appointed and partly to an arrangement under, which one of the Medical Inspectors acted as Inspector of Foods, with extra remuneration, an additional Medical Inspector being temporarily appointed.

S.–Surplus, 481. 18s. 10d. The Inspector being mainly engaged upon preliminary work and the Assistant ho not having been appointed, only a small amount of travelling took place in the year.

W.—Surplus, 75l. 7s. 7d., The Expenditure under this Sub-Head cannot be closely estimated as the amount of travelling required varies in different years.

W.—Surplus, 341.6s. 6d. The quantity of apparatus and chemicals required in the year was less than was estimated.

Mainly owing to the fact that a certain number of audits undertaken during the year were not fully completed within the period under review, and the stamp duty was therefore not received in the financial year.

RECEIPTS FROM STAMPs UNDER THE ALKALI, &c., WORKS REGULATION ACTs, 1881 and 1892.-2271. more than estimated. Chiefly due to a larger number of works being registered than was anticipated.
