1 Expenditure by function is presented on a basis to more closely follow the presentation used by Statistics Canada. Unless otherwise indicated, figures for previous years have been restated to be consistent with the presentation used for 1999/00.
2 Debt servicing for 1997/98 and previous years has been restated to reflect a change in accounting policy in 1998/99 with respect to earnings of sinking funds held for government direct operating debt. Earnings from sinking fund investments are recorded as deductions from related interest expenditure. The effect of this change reduces expenditure by $88.6 million in 1995/96; $81.6 million in 1996/97; and $69 million in 1997/98. This change did not affect the annual deficit.
