Estimated amount of Extra Receipts

1,1001 (Exclusive of 10,9001. appropriated in aid of Vote, as shewn above.) Amount of Extra Receipts realised in 1905-6 and paid over to the Exchequer - 2861. 6s. 9d.

EXPLANATION of the Causes of Variation between Expenditure and Grant. A.—The Surplus has arisen from a saving in the Amounts estimated to be required for Temporary Messengers, Extra Clerical Assistance and Engineering Expenses. A great portion of the savings on these Services has, however, been absorbed (a) by the increases of Salaries authorised by Treasury Letters of 9th February, 1905, No. 19724/04, 20th March, 1905, No. 3822/05, 18th October, 1905, No. 18778/05 and 3rd November, 1905, No. 18769/05 ; (b) by the addition of a Second Division Clerk to the Staff authorised by Treasury Letter of 9th February, 1905, No. 19724/05, and by an increase of expenditure in the amount estimated to be required for the service of cleaning, authorised by Treasury Letter of 5th April, 1906, No. 5621/06.

B.—The amount required under this Sub-Head was less than was estimated.
C.—The sum required for the Services of Clerks was less than was estimated.

D.--The surplus has arisen from the small amount of litigation pending during the year and from a less amount being required for copying (including payments to Law Stationers for hire of Clerks) than was estimated.

EXTRA RECEIPTS, The falling off in the Extra Receipts was due to the fact that a smaller number and amount of advances for Loans (upon which fees are payable) were made during the year than was anticipated.

VOTE 22.-REGISTRAR GENERAL'S OFFICE, ENGLAND—continued.

EXPLANATion of the Causes of Variation between Expenditure and Grant--continued.

APPROPRIATIONS IN AID. (a) Search Room Fees.

(6) Repayments by Local Authorities for Returns under Sec. 9 of 63 Vict. Cap. 4. (a) There is too much fluctuation in the receipts on account of Searches and Certified Copies to allow of a very close Estimate. The amount realized exceeded that of any previous year.

(). The reduced sum of £60 was included in the Estimates as it was impossible to forecast to what extent the Local Authorities would avail themselves of the information they might obtain under Section 9 of Census Act, 1900.

Extra REMUNERATION. By the authority of Treasury Letters of 5th January and 8th December 1904 (Nos. 21786/03 and 20288/04) the sum of 136i. 88. was paid for Extra Duty in connection with the preparation of the Decennial Supplement to the Registrar General's 65th Annual Report. A further sum of 621. 58. was paid from the Vote for Temporary Commissions by H.M. Treasury to the following Clerks, viz. :-T. A. Saunders, 311. Os. 6d., and J. W. Reading, 311. 4s. 6d., for preparing Statistics for the London Traffic Commission and for Work for the Redistribution Committee.
