§ Mr. Joel Barnett,
pursuant to his reply [Official Report, 29th July 1976],gave the following information:
So far as 1977–78 is concerned, the tables published on 22nd July—[Vol. 915, c. 2033–36]—showed the reduction in the contingency reserve up to that date and 473W listed announced changes. It is not possible to say whether future changes in programmes for 1976–77 and 1977–78 would be charged to the contingency reserve or dealt with in some other way.
