§ 1. Subject to the preparation and passage of the necessary order, the yearly sums proposed for Her Majesty's Civil List will be about £7.9 million. This is the simple average 305 of the estimated annual provision over the period 1991-2000. Provision, in round terms, for Her Majesty is as follows:
|Her Majesty's Civil List|
|£ million (rounded)|
|£7.9 million a year|
§ 2. The annual estimates are arrived at by adopting the 1990 Civil List of £5.09 million, allowing for necessary current and capital expenditure on information technology, and increasing the total by 7.5 per cent. a year. The result for each year is then adjusted downwards by a percentage factor each year to reflect efficiency.
§ 3. The proposed yearly sums for the other members of the royal family have been calculated consistently with the approach adopted for the Queen's Civil List.
§ The sums are:
|The Queen Elizabeth, The Queen Mother||0.64|
|HRH The Prince Philip, The Duke of Edinburgh||0.36|
|HRH The Duke of York||0.25|
|HRH The Prince Edward||0.1|
|HRH The Princess Royal||0.23|
|HRH The Princess Margaret, Countess of Snowdon||0.22|
|HRH Princess Alice, Duchess of Gloucester||0.09|
|HRH The Duke of Kent||0.63|
|HRH Princess Alexandra|
|HRH The Duke of Gloucester|
§ As the Queen has agreed to continue to refund the annuities made under section 3 of the Civil List Act 1972, the annual net cost to the Consolidated Fund for the other members of the royal family is thereby reduced to £1.88 million.
