HC Deb 11 November 1985 vol 86 c46W
Mr. Bowen Wells

asked the Secretary of State for Trade and Industry how it is proposed to fund preliminary expenses in connection with the sale of shares in Rolls-Royce.

Mr. Peter Morrison

Subject to parliamentary approval of the necessary supplementary estimate, a sum of £100,000 will be required in the current financial year. The new cash limit created for class IV Vote 27 will be offset be a reduction of £50,000 each in the cash limits of class IV Vote 6 from £379,449,000 to £379,399,000 and class IV Vote 17 from £146,413,000 to £146,363,000 and will not therefore involve any net change in public expenditure.
