HC Deb 26 June 1987 vol 118 c8W
Mr. Maples

asked the Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster whether any changes will be made to his Department's cash limits for 1987–88.

Mr. Kenneth Clarke

Subject to parliamentary approval of the necessary Supplementary Estimates, the cash limit on class V, vote 2 will be increased by £9,125,000 from £462,124,000 to £471,249,000 to fund additional expenditure in 1987–88 on the inner cities initiative and city action teams, for which my Department now has responsibility. No net increase to public expenditure results from this change. The Department of Employment's existing provision for these programmes and their running costs will be transferred to my Department in Winter Supplementary Estimates.
