Other issues

It should be noted that the figures in the consolidated weekly financial statement of the Eurosystem as at 3 October 2008 (published on 8 October 2008) have changed due to technical adjustments in one Eurosystem central bank. These changes are, however, deemed to be immaterial and, consequently, a republication of the consolidated weekly financial statement of the Eurosystem as at 3 October 2008 is not necessary. The actual week-on-week changes shown in this week's financial statement already include the aforementioned changes.
