HC Deb 08 June 1993 vol 226 c208W
Mr. Burns

To ask the Secretary of State for Education what changes he has to announce to cash limits on votes within his responsibility for 1993–94.

Mr. Patten

Subject to parliamentary approval of the necessary revised estimate, the cash limit for vote 1, schools, will be reduced, by £313,000 from £743,210,000 to £742,897,000. The reduction takes account of the appropriation in aid of £321,000 from the Welsh Office as its contribution towards expenditure on certain joint England and Wales programmes. This is partly offset by a transfer of £8,000 from the Chessington Computer Centre for the provision of payroll services in respect of the European Schools on the centre's becoming an agency on 1 April 1993.
