HC Deb 17 July 1991 vol 195 cc183-7W
Mr. Robert G. Hughes

To ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer if he will list the entitlements for 1991–92 resulting from the carry forward of capital and running costs underspends allowed under the end-year flexibility schemes.

Mr. Mellor

A list of entitlements totalling £162 million for capital expenditure and £26 million for running costs is shown in the table. Subject to parliamentary approval of the necessary supplementary estimates, individual cash limits and running costs limits will be increased when entitlement is taken up. The total increase in cash limits resulting from the take-up of end-year flexibility will be charged to the reserve and will therefore not add to the planned total of public expenditure.
