Net increase on expenditure for 1897–98,
567,983. Transport again increased, on
account of the Soudan Expedition and
Manoeuvres, and there was additional
expenditure on Medical Services, Supplies,
and Stores, due to the increase of the Army.
Extra charges due to the South African War,
22,790,000l.; other expenditure, 20,275,3981,
showing net increase on 1898.99 of 179,025l,
due to an increase of expenditure on Vote I.
(additional numbers) and on Vote X.
(Barracks, &c.). Cost of transport was
reduced by suspension of ordinary moves
through the war.
Extra charges due to the South African War,
61,991,000l., and China Expedition,
3,270,000l.; other expenditure, 26,082,544l,
showing met increase on 1899–1900 of
5,807,146l., due chiefly to increased per-
manent numbers of the Army, to rise in
the price of supplies, and to special train-
ing of the Auxiliary Forces, and home
defence measures.
Extra charges due to the South African
War, 62,324,500l., and China Expedition,
1,807,800l.; other expenditure, 28,528,574l.,
showing increase on 1900–01 of 2,446,030l.
mainly due to the increase of the Army,
and to expenditure on “Mowatt” reserves
of stores.
Extra charges due to the South African War,
39,307,000l., China Expedition, 587,900l.,
and Somaliland Expedition, 252,000l.,
other expenditure, 28,716,627l., showing
net increase on 1901–02 of 188,053!., due
chiefly to the pension charges resulting
from the war.
Extra charges due to the South African
War, 3,230,000l. China Expedition,
393,000l. ; Somaliland, 1,618,000l. ; other
expenditure, 31,487,000l., showing a net
increase on 1902–03 of 2,770,000l., due to
retention of troops in South Africa, and to
increased expenditure on field training and
manoeuvres, works, and the improvement
of the Medical, Educational, Intelligence
and Remount Departments.
Extra charges due to Somaliland operations,
412,000. Other expenditure, 28,483,000l.,
showing a net decrease on 1903–4 of
3,004,000l. due to completion of expendi-
ture on “Mowatt” reserves of stores; to
utilisation of stocks of clothing surplus
after the war; to the reduction of men
and animals in S. Africa ; and to further
receipts from sales of anima's and stores
in S. Africa and China.

Reduction on normal expenditure of 1904–5. 4,000l. Savin, s due to reduction of Colonial Infantry establishments, disbandment of Garrison Regiment, etc., utilisation of more surplus clothing, and completion in 1904-5 of the “Mowatt” reserves of Stores, wore balanced by expenditure of 1,478,000l. on re-armament of Horse and Field Artillery and growth of charges for Service Pay, Army Reserve, Loan annuities and non-effective services.

Net decrease on Estimate 1905–6, 17,000l. 1,187,000l. provided for re-armament of Horse and Field Artillery. Savings by reduction of Establishments and on Sea Transport, balance by increase of Army Reserve (220,000l.), partial exhaustion of surplus stocks of clothing, increased provision for Rifles and Small Arm Ammunition, and growth of non - effective charges.

Net decrease on Estimate 1906–7, 2,036,000l. 488,000'. provided for re-armament of Horse and Field Artillery (d. crease 699,000l.). Other savings by reduction of Establishments (men and horses), partly balanced by increases under Army Reserve, Works and non-estective charges.

in the ARMY ESTIMATES for 1907-08 and those Voted for 1906-07.

VOTE A.-NUMBERS: DECREASE 14,100.

It is necessary, when Establishments are in course of reduction, to provide in this Vote for numbers temporarily in excess of the new (reduced) Establishments until they can be absorbed. Allowing for the provision so made in 1906–7 and 1907-8, the real reduction of Establishments is 16,600, as follows:
