Complaint was made that the health of the Qfficers suffered owing to the inadequate heating of the Customs “boxes” in the various docks comprised in the Port of London, and as the only means of meeting the difficulty, Electric Radiators have been supplied, the Insurance Companies interested in the properties objecting to other modes of heating.

Unforeseen Expenditure was incurred in connection with the laying of a Water Main to the Customs Burning Ground.

When the Estimates for the year were under consideration, it was £. s. d. calculated that the full amount applicable to the service would |o Estimate - - - - - 5,200 — — have become chargeable by 31st §. 1905. This expectation | Expenditure to 31st March 1906 - - 4,696 6 10 was not however realised, the present remanet charge being the result. The saving on the total estimate is due to the low Balance - - £. 503 13 2 tender accepted.

Increased accommodation was badly needed owing to the growth of business. Structural alterations have been made with this view.

To meet the requirements of the Liverpool Corporation, a new Main was fixed involving an excess on the Estimate.

Pop. carried out by the Admiralty had endangered the stability of the structure, and, a retaining wall and other works had to be executed to ensure its safety. A wooden building was also erected at the same time for look-out purposes.

The former premises were very inconveniently situated for Customs business, and strong representations were made by the Sunderland Chamber of Commerce and Shipowners' Society on the subject. Accommodation is accordingly being provided in a building in course of erection for ...iii. Marine purposes in a central position in the town. The expenditure this year is nearly wholly in respect of the proportion othe cost of the Site chargeable to the Custom House.

The requirements of the year were in excess of anticipation.
