^ To 22nd January, 1901. Undr the
Civil List Act, 1901, Civil List Peh-
slons are not chargeable on the sum
paid for the Civil List.



Under the National Debt (Conver-
sion) Act, 1888, over £549,000,000 of
8 per cent. Stock was converted by the
then Unionist Administration into
2| per cent. Stock. The immediate-
saving in annual charge effected by
this measure was £1,800,000, and
the ultimate saving £2,600,000. The
balance of the old 3 per cent. Stock,
amounting to nearly £41,000,000, was
also redeemed or converted into 2f per
cent. Stock, under the National Debt
Redemption Act, 1889.



X The amounts representing repayment
of Principal included in these totals
were £1,088,217 and £5,735,700 in
1901-02 and 1902-03 respectively.



The outstanding portion of the
Russian- Dutch I^oan was paid off in
1891, the sum required to discharge
the debt being borrowed on a termin-
able annuity to expire in 1906.



II Including the Salaries and Expenses
of the Labour Department, the
Patent Office, and the Seamen's
Registry Office.

*[ As a consequence of the issue of a
Treasury Minute under the Public
Accounts and Charges Act, 1891,
directing that certain receipts of
Civil Departments should in future
be taken in aid of expenditure, the
whole of the expenses of the establish-
ment of the Mint are now met out of
such " Appropriations in Aid."

§ The greater portion of the expenditure
which was, in years prior to f 1899-
1900, shown under this head (in-
cluding expenditure on account of
pauper lunatics, Ireland) is now in-
cluded under the head of " Payments
to Local Taxation Accounts under the
Local Government (Ireland) Act>
1898." See page 376.
