MEMORANDUM.

1. Departmental expenditure (other than Consolidated Fund charges under Statute) is met from two main sources, (1) supply grants, (2) receipts appropriated in aid. Both supply grants and appropriatious in aid are authorised by Parliament each year, but circumstances tend to concentrate attention mainly on supply grants ; that is to say, on the net estimates of the year. In order to measure the actual total expenditure of Public Departments, the more significant figures are the gross estimates, i.e., the total of supply grants and appropriations in aid combined, as these figures represent the total cash sums placed by Parliament at the disposal of Departments. A certain amount of duplication is involved by interdepartmental payments, principally for the cost of production by the Ordnance Factories for the Fighting Departments, and payments to Army and Air Votes from the Middle East Vote.

2. Table I gives, under certain main heads, the figures of gross expenditure for the financial years 1913-14 and 1915-16 to 1923-24.

3. Table II compares the net provision in the original pre-war estimates for the financial year 1914–15 for Civil Services with the provision made under the same heads in the Estimates for 1923–24.

4. Table III gives particulars of the total personnel of the Army, Navy, and Air Force, and of the staffs (other than industrial) employed in Government Departinents before the war, at the date of the armistice, and at various more recent dates.

The gross estimates for Supply Services for 1923–24 shown in Table I amount to £495,065,000. The expenditure will be met by supply grants of £436,146,000 and by receipts of £58,919,000 appropriated in aid, as follows :
