Of the net sum a balance of £33,951 was carried to the next financial year, only £669,546 being paid into the Exchequer. Add to this last figure a sum of £22,347 (the balance of previous year now paid in), and a total of £691,893 is reached, which, with the "Miscellaneous" total of £2,316,329 makes up the net yield of this branch of Revenue to £3,008,221. But this total-arrived at on p. 39 of the accounts—is further added to on p. 14 by a sum of £67,287 for "Miscellaneous receipts of the Revenue Departments only." Only after a bewildering search can anyone thus verify the totals with their details.
