HC Deb 28 March 1985 vol 76 c318W
Mr. Michael Brown

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer if he will give revised cash limits for 1984–85 which take account of the decision by some Departments not to seek supplementary provision to cover the carry-forward allowed under the end-year flexibility schemes.

Mr. Peter Rees

Under the end-year flexibility schemes announced in 1983, some 23 1984–85 cash limits were increased to allow for the carry-forward of underspend in 1983–84 — [31 July 1984, columns189–92.] In the case of six voted cash limits, the relevant Departments have not sought parliamentary approval of the extra provision in a Supplementary Estimate. To keep the control figures in line, the cash limits are accordingly being reduced. A list is shown in the following table.
