Appendix A: Expense by function and sub‑function

Note: Caution should be exercised in comparing 2007‑08 and 2008‑09 data with the forward years as reclassifications arising as a result of improved reporting as part of the Operation Sunlight reforms have produced structural breaks in the data for some functions and sub‑functions.
