SCOPE OF THE ACCOUNTS. 1. The general scheme of presentation adopted in last year's volume of Trading Accounts and Balance Sheets has been continued in the present volume. The accounts are, in the main, preceded by explanatory notes prepared by the respective administering Departments, and those relating to services controlled by the same Department are grouped together.
As a rule, the Trading Accounts for normal services are in respect of the year 1921-22, whereas those for services undertaken during the war, for war materials, food supplies, &c., cover the whole period from the beginning of operations to 31 March, 1922.
ACCOUNTS NOT INCLUDED IN THIS VOLUME. 2. Of the accounts referred to in paragraph 2 of last year's Report as being not then available, a number have since been received, and are included in this volume. Certain accounts for other services either terminated before, or still continuing on, 31 March, 1922, may be included in next year's volume as may be directed by the Treasury, with whom rests the determination of the accounts to be rendered under Section 5 of the Exchequer and Audit Departments Act, 1921.
