ACTUAL AND EXPECTED NEW CAPITAL EXPENDITURE


FINANCIAL YEARS AT CURRENT PRICES

The graphs below show the seven estimates of actual and expected expenditure for each financial year. The estimates appearing below relate to data contained in Tables 5 and 6. Commentary in this section includes reference to some unpublished data, providing some further analysis of change in these estimates by detailed industry. Advice about the application of realisation ratios to these estimates is in paragraphs 26 to 29 of the Explanatory Notes.

The timing and construction of these estimates are as follows:
