HC Deb 05 June 1996 vol 278 c499W
Mr. Nigel Evans

To ask the Secretary of State for National Heritage what changes she proposes to make to her Department's cash limits and running costs limits for 1996–97. [31794]

Mrs. Virginia Bottomley

Subject to parliamentary approval of the necessary supplementary estimates, the cash limit for class X, vote 1 will be increased by £17,519,000 from £931,241,000 to £948,760,000. The increase will be to transfer responsibility for the voluntary services from the Home Office to the Department of National Heritage, and for a building from the Department of Trade and Industry to the British library and will not therefore add to the planned total of public expenditure.
