2 The figures in the above table exclude expenditure on running costs. The unallocated entry is made up of categories of spend which the Agency does not allocate to districts. These are under the following headings:

Maintenance—Dilapidations, estate land maintenance, security, land marketing signs, fire and engineering insurances.

Land and Buildings—Plant and equipment, notice boards, owner controlled insurance, gas, water and electricity supplies, feasibility studies and surveys,

Development Grants — Programme for Rural Initiatives and Development, Development of Rural Area Workshops, Better Business Services, Training and Employment Grants Scheme and Craft Grants.
