REFORMATORY AND INDUSTRIAL SCHOOLS, GREAT BRITAIN.

REPORT OF THE COMPTROLLER AND AUDITOR GENERAL,

Excess. 1. ExPENDITURE in excess of the Estimate has taken place under Sub-Head M.

#. 2. In paragraph 3 of the Report upon the Account for the year 1890–91, it was in ej mentioned that the Secretary of State considered it necessary to enforce a rule, that the Certified grants should not be paid for inmates in excess of the numbers for which the schools

Accom- are certified to have adequate accommodation, after the end of the month in which the modation excess first occurred. I am now informed that it has been found necessary in exceptional cases to relax this rule, and that the Inspector may allow the grant when the excess has extended beyond the end of the month, upon the understanding that particulars are afterwards

submitted to the Secretary of State for approval.

CLAss III.-continued.

Vote 9–BROADMooR CRIMINAL LUNATIC ASYLUM-continued.

ExPLANATION of the Causes of Variation between Expenditure and Grant.

A.—Savings due to vacancies and other changes in the Asylum Staff. The Expenditure includes the sum of 811. 19s. 3d paid to two female officers as Gratuities on marriage.

B.—Favourable contracts were obtained for several articles of consumption, which it was anticipated would have increased in price; and though certain articles—such as bacon, cheese, and sugar—became dearer, there was a considerable fall in the cost of meat, flour, tea (reduction of duty), dried fruits, etc.

C., D., E., and F.—Casual variations.

G.—It was foreseen, in estimating, that the sum applied for would be entirely absorbed in much-needed restoration and repair of pianos, harmonium, and general furniture, but the excess is due to the furnishing of a new dormitory as an extension of infirmary accommodation at the Female Wing.

Treasury sanction for this Excess was obtained, dated 9th February, 1906.

H.—This saving was due (1) to the prevailing mildness of the winter, and (2) to considerable reductions in the prices of coals and coke.

I.—Saving due to the low prices of sundry items, and to greater economy in the use of cleaning articles.

K.—This surplus was not required, as a fewer number of Attendants than was anticipated and provided for were eligible for the allowance.

L.—Amount unexpended. An accurate forecast of Expenditure under this Sub-Head is impossible.

M.—A casual variation. There was a slight falling off in the value of the labour of patients usefully employed.

N.—A large quantity of the soil excavated for the underground water tank was found to be gravel of good quality, and it was used to re-surface the terrace and yards surrounding the tank, thus avoiding the expense of carting it away to a distance. Sand, also, was found on the spot, and this, with some of the finer gravel, was used in making concrete for the top and bottom of the tank, thus effecting a further saving.

The savings on both these items, as compared with the Estimate, amounted to upwards of 80l.

Small sums were saved on the iron staircases, range and gas oven, and wringer, all of which were erected at a lower cost than was anticipated at the time the Estimate was prepared.

O. and P.-Casual variations.

Q.-Variation attributable to the exhaustion of funds available for the maintenance of a patient, and to the death of another patient bringing the contribution to an end.

ExTRA REMUNERATION.—The Superintendent received from the Home Office Vote the sum of 26l. 5s. for medical inquiries in capital cases.

The Surplus of 1,945l. 1s. 10d., shown on the Account of the Vote for “Broadmoor Criminal Lunatic Asylum,” for the year ended 31st March 1905, has been surrendered.

A. E. Sayer, - R. Brayn,
Steward. Accounting Officer.

I certify that this Account has been examined under my directions, and is correct.

John A. Kempe, Examined, Comptroller and Auditor-General. H. J. Bidwell.
