VOTE 8.—PUBLIC EDUCATION, SCOTLAND—continued.
EXPLANATION of the Causes of Variation between Expenditure and Grant.
Sub-Head C.- The saving was due chiefly to changes in the Staff, and partly to less being spent on Music Inspection than was estimated.
Sub-Head D.—The excess was due to the amount for Removal Expenses having been larger than was expected.
Sub-Head E.-Casual variation.
Sub-Head F.—The excess was due to the number of these children being somewhat larger than had been estimated.
Sub-Head G.-Casual variation.
Sub-Head H.-The excess was due to the average attendance in Voluntary Schools being slightly higher than estimated.
Sub-Head J.-The large saving was due to the decision in March, 1906, that the unspent balance of the General Aid Grant should be surrendered, instead of being transferred to the Suspense Account proposed to be established under Their Lordships' Minute of 16th February 1905.
Sub-Head L.— The saving was due in small part to the falling in of more Code Pensions than had been expected, but chiefly to the amount required for Superannuations and allowances under the Act, 61 and 62 Vict. c. 57, being somewhat less than had been estimated.
