REPORTS - FINANCE.

The report of the Department of Finance was read by the SECRETARY FOR FINANCE, who amplified it by supplying further details on certain of the matters referred to therein. He suggested that the Deputies requiring any further information should make application to him for it rather than occupy the time of the meeting with questions of a routine nature. A detailed statement of accounts with schedules showing the expenditure of each Department, would be circulated to the members at a later date.
