§ Mr. Gerald Bowden
asked the Attorney-General what effect the transfer to the Lord Chancellor's Department of the immigration appellate authorities announced by the Prime Minister on 12 March, Official Report, column 264, and other recent changes will have on the Lord Chancellor's running costs limit.
§ The Attorney-General
There will be a net increase in the Lord Chancellor's Department's gross running costs limit of £1,610,000 from £188,903,000 to £190,513,000. Two factors contribute to this change : firstly, the transfer of the immigration appellate authorities to the Lord Chancellor's Department, and, secondly, the fact that expenditure on judges' robes and sheriff's rewards is no longer to be classified as running costs.
