|1||Expenditure by function has been restated to conform more closely to the presentation used by Statistics Canada.|
|2||To conform to the 1997/98 budget estimate, expenditure has been restated to reflect an accounting policy change in respect to tangible capital assets. The effect of this change is that the acquisition of certain capital assets is no longer charged to expenditure, rather these purchases are charged to capital asset accounts which are then in turn amortized or depreciated over the estimated useful life of the asset. The effect of this restatement is to reduce expenditure by $33 million in 1994/95 and by $22 million in 1995/96.|
