§ Mr. Scott
Subject to parliamentary approval of the necessary Supplementary Estimate, the running cost limit for class XV vote 7 (administration and miscellaneous services) will be increased by £12.139 million. This is the net effect of a reapportionment between non-running cost and running cost expenditure (£4.437 million), additional receipts of £7.563 million from the national insurance fund, a transfer of £143,000 from Inland Revenue and a decrease of £5,000 as a contribution towards the direct entry grade 7 competition 1988, which is offset by a corresponding increase in vote XX.1.
As a result of these changes and those announced by my hon. and learned Friend the Minister for Health, which add a further £4.856 million to the running costs of vote XIV.3, the running cost limit of the Departments of Social Security and Health is increased by £16.995 million from £1,785.189 million to £1,802.184 million. These increases do not add to the planned total of public expenditure.
