§ Mr. PETO
asked full particulars of the anticipated savings, under various subheads, amounting to £182,990 for the year ending 31st March, 1911, referred to in the Supplementary Estimate?
§ Mr. HERBERT SAMUEL
The anticipated savings are mainly under Sub-head A. 1, Chief Office Salaries and Wages; under Sub-heads C. 1 and C. 3, Provincial Salaries and Wages; and under Sub-head N. 2, Packet Services. The savings under the Salaries and Wages Sub-heads, under which very large sums are voted, are due to the allowances for increase not being all required, while the saving under the Packet Service Sub-head is due to certain new agreements not yet being concluded.
