EXPLANATION of the Causes of Variation between Expenditure and Grant.

A.-Salaries and Allowances.-Surplus 751. 9s. 1d. Owing to the retirement of the Assistant Inspector of Sea Fisheries at a date earlier than that required by the regulations, and consequent promotions to the vacancies created at the minimum salary of the various scales, less the proportion of a special increment of 221. 10s. given to a Second Division Clerk as from 1st July 1905.

B. - Travelling.-Surplus 1071. 3s. 2d. The expenditure under this Sub-Head depends largely on the branding work during the great summer herring fishing season, which was less in 1905 than in some previous years.

C.-Postage. Surplus 91. 38. 2d. The expenditure under this Sub-Head varies and was somewhat less than usual during the year.

F.-Scientific Investigation.Deficit 501. 28. 3d. Due to the expenditure on an Inquiry into the migration etc. of the herring in the Firth of Clyde having been more than was anticipated, and to other causes. (Treasury Letters of 13th March 1906, No. 3890 ; and 20th March 1906, No. 4355).

G.-Incidental Expenses.--Surplus, 1191. ls. 8d. The expenditure under this Sub-Head for branding irons, advertising, and petty incidents is subject to fluctuation according to the exigencies of the service.

EXCHEQUER EXTRA RECEIPTS. Deficit, 6481. 38. 2d. Owing to the number of barrels presented for the crown brand, for which fees are charged, having been less than the average on which the estimate was based. The estimate also included a sum of 1601. as receivable from the Local Loans Fund for administration of Loans ; the amount recoverable for this service is paid direct into the Exchequer.

The Surplus of 2221. 58. 4d. shown on the Account of the Vote "Fishery Board for Scotland,” for the year ended 31st March 1905, has been surrendered.
