To ask the Lord President of the Council if he proposes to make any changes to the Privy Council Office's cash limit and running costs limit in the current year.

Mr. Wakeham

Subject to parliamentary approval of the necessary Supplementary Estimate, the cash limit on class XX, vote 11 is being increased by £30,000 from £1,187,000 to £1,217,000 to meet the higher costs of parliamentary publications.

The increase will be charged to the Reserve and will not add to the planned total of public expenditure.

In addition, the running costs limit is being increased by £30,000 from £1,207,000 to £1,237,000.
