§ Mr. Dorrell
The cash limit for class XI vote 1—hospital community health, family health and related services, England—will be reduced by £4,000,000 (from £27,686,304,000 to £27,682,304,000). This allows for a transfer to class XI, vote 2—Department of Health, administration, miscellaneous health and personal services, England—in respect of a re-apportionment between health votes.
The cash limit for class XI, vote 2—Department of Health, administration, miscellaneous health and personal social services, England—will be increased by £35,984,000, from £1,173,472,000 to £1,209,456,000. This allows for an increase of £36,000,000; £25,000,000 for services for people seeking asylum; £7,000,000 for a grant to the Thalidomide Trust, and £4,000,000—running costs—for a transfer from class XI, vote 1 as mentioned. The overall increase is partially offset by a transfer of £16,000 to class VI, vote 2—regeneration and countryside and wildlife, England—in respect of a project requiring assistance from the European regional development fund.
The Department's gross running costs limit will be increased by £4,002,000 from £276,202,000 to £280,204,000 reflecting the transfer. Also the original running cost limit published in the "Public Expenditure Statistical Analyses", Cm 3201, table 3.8a was understated by £2,000.
All increases will either be offset by foregoing the take-up of end year flexibility, transfer to or from other votes or charged to the reserve and will not therefore add to the planned total of public expenditure.
