HC Deb 01 February 1991 vol 184 c678W
Mr. Paice

To ask the Secretary of State for Health if he has any changes to the cash limits for the Office of Population Censuses and Surveys for 1990–91.

Mr. Dorrell

Subject to parliamentary approval of the necessary supplementary estimate, the cash limit for class XIII, vote 6 (Office of Population Censuses and Surveys) will be increased by £220,000 from £48,878,000 to £49,098,000. This reflects an increase of £220,000 in capital provision towards the fitting out of the 1991 census regional processing office at Hillington in Glasgow (this represents a timing change within the overall 1991 census expenditure); an increase of £272,000 in the social survey area exempt from gross running cost control for development work on the enlarged labour force survey. This latter cost will be met from within the existing resource of the Department of Employment (class VI, vote 2) and will be financed by an equivalent increase in appropriations in aid. The increase is within the forecast outturn for the planning total published today in the statistical supplement to the 1990 autumn statement.
