REVISIONS IN THIS ISSUE

The March quarter 2008 estimate for capital expenditure has been revised upwards $563 million or 2.9% in original terms. The revisions were due to receipt of more accurate data which also resulted in some redistribution of expenditure from buildings and structures to equipment, plant and machinery. Within the total revision equipment, plant and machinery has been revised upwards by $409 million or 4.2% and buildings and structures has been revised upwards by $155 million or 1.7%. Property and business services were subject to the largest revisions while the Mining industry has been most affected by the compositional changes.
