(2) if the £1 million is for capital projects or is minus the salaries, rent and administration of the task forces themselves.

[holding answer 5 June 1991]: The quoted figure of about £1 million per annum refers to project expenditure alone; this may be capital expenditure, project running costs (including salaries and administration), or both.
