r—Revised.
* Data not available.
l/ During March and April changes from 8 year ago reflect in part the fact that last
.
. year Easter was oh April 9 while this year it was on March 25• For this reason
it is estimated that in comparison with last year allowance should be made for
an increase in sale's of about 4 per cent for the month of March as a whole and
for a corresponding decrease for the month of April as a whole.
