ExPLANATION of Causes of Variation between Expenditure and Grant.

A.—-The saving was mainly due to the occurrence of vacancies caused by the retirement of a Principal Clerk and others, and to the consequent appointment and promotion of officers at minimum rates of salary. There was also a saving under “Copying” and “Temporary Assistance.”

B.—Small savings occurred on the “Housekeeping” item, and a saving of 1021. arose on the item for “Travelling” owing to the Messengers' expenses being below the average of recent years. These savings proved more than sufficient to meet an excess of about 56l. on the provision for parcels postage, which was due mainly to the fact that five quarters' supply of stamps were paid for during the year in the case of the Emigrants' Information Office.

ExPLANATION of the Causes of Variation between Expenditure and Grant.

A —The variation between expenditure and grant is accounted for by savings on the amount provided for a Junior Clerk, and to the expenditure in respect of Shorthand Writing, Copying and Office Keeper's Expenses having been less than estimated for. , Against the gross decrease have to be placed the Salary of the Lord President (revived in Lord Crewe's favour, see Treasury 1291/06), and an increase of Salary to his Private Secretary (Treasury 286/06): in addition, provision had to be made for an increase of Salary to a Second Division Clerk, and for the Salary of an additional Assistant Clerk (Abstractor Class) (Treasury, 14243/05).

B.—The difference is due to savings on the amounts taken for Special Trains and Office Keeper's Expenses.

D.—For an explanation of the amount of Office Fees received in excess of the Estimate for 1905-6 I desire to refer to my Memorandum of 1900. At the time when the estimate was made the number of Records received showed a considerable decline as compared with the previous year.
