NOTES:
1. Prior to the financial year 1977-78 allocations were in terms of the value of work to be started in the periods to which they related: from 1977-78 they have been in terms of expenditure to be incurred in financial years. Part of the expenditure in the year to 31st March 1978 is therefore in respect of projects started prior to that year.
2. The periods for which allocations were issued immediately prior to the financial year 1977-78 did not coincide with financial years. The figures in columns (a) and (b) are for two such periods together, one falling partly and the other wholly in the financial year 1976-77.
3. The amounts in column (d) are provisional.

Details of the staff in post on 31st March in each year are set out in the table below:for nursery education in each of the last two financial years, showing in each case the shortfall between the allocation mace and the level taken up.
