Casual variation.

Some charges did not come in course of payment till after the close of the year.

Saving due to the substitution of hydraulic for electric power.

Some small items of expenditure in connection with this Service will fall on the year 1906–7.

Remanet. The whole of the charges could not be disposed of before the close of 1904–5.

Do. Do.

Expenditure under this Head is uncertain.

Some claims could not be dealt with before the close of the year.

The work at the Speaker's Residence provided for in the Supplementary Vote was carried out, but the progress of the extension of the electric lighting generally during the recess was less than had been estimated for.

More piping was required than had been anticipated, and a new motor had to be put in instead of re-winding an old one as at first intended.

When the wrk came to be put in land it was found necessary to renew the whole of the circulation pipes, and additional expenditure had to be incurred in the substitution of improved cooking apparatus for that formerly in use.

In view of the pressure of other Services, expenditure under this Head was deferred.
