This reduction represents a transfer to class XIII, vote 3. The cash limits for class XIII, vote 3 (Department of Health administration, miscellaneous health services and personal social services, England) will be increased by £43,255,000 from £691,253,000 to £734,508,000. This provides an additional £42,000,000 for grants to haemophiliacs infected with HIV; £1,250,000 transferred from class XIII, vote 1 following a reapportionment of family health service funds and £5,000 from class XIV, vote 7 for revised manpower costs.
