§ Sir Fergus Montgomery
asked the Attorney-General what changes he proposes to make to the 1986–87 cash limit for class XX, 24 law changes, England and Wales (Treasury Solicitors Department) and to the Treasury solicitors running costs limit.
Subject to Parliamentary approval of the necessary Supplementary Estimate the cash limit for the Treasury Solicitor's Department will be increased by £495,000 from £8,947,000 to £9,442,000. The increase is mainly due to increased accommodation costs but also reflects the exceptional volume of work partially offset by a higher level of receipts and is being charged to the Reserve. There has been a related increase in the gross running costs limit of £861,000 from £9,937,000 to £10,798,000.
