Mr. Aitken

As announced by my right hon. Friend the Member for Enfield, Southgate (Mr. Portillo) on 19 July, a winter supplementary estimate will be needed in 1994–95 for HM Treasury's civil superannuation vote. Parliamentary approval will be sought in the supply resolutions and winter Consolidated Fund Bill that will follow presentation of the winter supplementary estimates in mid-November. No requirements for supplementary estimates in 1995–96 and 1996–97 are foreseen at this time.
