HC Deb 08 June 1993 vol 226 c231W
Mr. Hayes

To ask the Secretary of State for Employment what changes will be made to the cash limits or running costs limits of his Department for 1993–94.

Mr. David Hunt

Subject to parliamentary approval of the necessary supplementary estimates, the following changes will be made:

the cash limit for Class V, Vote 1—Employment Department: programmes and central services—will be increased by £60,647,000 from £2,438,620,000 to £2,499,267,000;

the cash limit for Class V, Vote 2—Employment Department: Employment Service—will be increased by £35,562,000 from £603,00o7,00 to £638,569,000;

the single running cost limit for the Employment Department—Class V, Votes 1 and 2 will be increased by £8,392,000 from £1,439,658,000 to £1,448,050,000.

The cash limit increases on class V, votes 1 and 2 are mainly the effect of the increased provision to fund the new employment measures announced by the then Chancellor of the Exchequer in his Budget statement to the House of Commons on 16 March 1993. The running cost limit increase is mainly to cover administration expenditure on the new measures.

The increase will be charged to the reserve and will not therefore add to the planned total of public expenditure.
