§ Mr. Evennett
To ask the Secretary of State for Social Security whether there has been any change in the cash limited expenditure of his Department for 1992–93.
§ Mr. Scott
Subject to parliamentary approval of the necessary supplementary estimate, the cash limit for class XIV vote 3 (housing benefit administration and community charge benefit administration, payments into the social fund in respect of discretionary expenditure and other grants) will be increased by £13,981,000 from £351,991,000 to £365,972,000. This revision takes account of an increase in the grant-in-aid to the Independent Living Fund (£13,981,000) to enable it to continue to help severely disabled persons to live independently. The increase will be charged to the reserve and will not therefore add to the planned total of public expenditure.
