§ Mr. Squire
asked the Secretary of State for the Environment what effect the breaches of the cash limit in 1979–80 on the Royal Palaces and Parks etc. Vote (Vote viii. 6) and the Property Services Agency Administration Vote (Vote xiv. 2) will have on the 1980–81 cash limits.
§ Mr. Heseltine
When the final outturn figures for Votes VIII.6 and XIV.2 are determined, 1980–81 cash limits will be reduced by the amount of the overspend on the 1979–80 cash limits. In the case of Vote VIII.6 the reduction will be made proportionately on Vote VIII.6 and Vote XIV.1 since expenditure on Parliament and the Privy Council, which contributed to the overspend, now falls on the latter Vote following the transfer from Vote VIII.6 shown in the Revised Estimates published on 4 July.
