HC Deb 14 February 1985 vol 73 c267W
Sir Peter Mills

asked the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food whether it is proposed to change the cash limit on any Department Vote for which he has responsibility.

Mr. Jopling

Yes. Following underspending on a number of services, the cash limit for Class III, Vote 4 (Other Agricultural and Food Services and Support for the Fishing Industry) is being reduced by £7 million from £149,134,000 to £142,134,000. This reduction will partly offset increased expenditure, subject to parliamentary approval, of £23,300,000 on Class III, Vote 3 (Agricultural Support, Animal Health, Land Drainage and Flood Protection) which is not subject to a cash limit and for which a supplementary estimate will be presented to Parliament shortly.
