HC Deb 26 June 1987 vol 118 c6W
Mr. Heathcoat-Amory

asked the Secretary of State for Social Services whether any changes will be made to cash limits for his Department.

Mr. Newton

Subject to parliamentary approval of the necessary Supplementary Estimate, the cash limit for class XIV, vote 3 (Miscellaneous Health Services and Personal Social Services, England) will be increased by £2,500,000 (from £399,664,000 to £402,164,000), to reflect the increased allocation to the Public Health Laboratory Service Board announced on 15 May, and the cash limit for class XIV, vote 1 (Hospital and Community Health Services) will be reduced by £1 million to £10,339,618,000. Since the non-cash limited class XIV, vote 2 (Family Practitioner and Other Services (England)) now requires £1,500,000 less than was earlier estimated, there is no net change in the public expenditure planning total.
