NOTE: Commencing in 2003-04, Estimates are presented on the accrual basis of accounting.

Differences between cash and accrual relate to adjustments such as timing of transfer payments and provisions for bad debts, that would increase or decrease the 2002-03 amounts had they been presented on the accrual basis.
