§ The Prime Minister
Subject to parliamentary approval of the necessary supplementary estimate, the cash limit of the Cabinet Office: other services, class XVIII, vote 1, will be increased by £4,354,000 from £37,682,000 to £42,036,000 and the running cost limit will be increased by £2,567,000 from £40,586,000 to £43,153,000.
The increases reflect the transfer of provision of £645,000—running costs—and. £1,457,000—capital—from the Office of the Public Service, class XVII, vote 1, to cover the cost of new repayment services; the transfer of certain administrative functions, the OPS's contribution to the cost of early staff departures and new IT systems and the increase of £70,000 in both running costs and receipts to account for staff loaned to Inland Revenue on repayment terms.
The increases also include the transfer of provision of £105,000—running costs—and £400,000—capital—from the reserve to fund new services and essential building works.
The vote is eligible for a cash limit increase of £1,788,000 in respect of end-year flexibility for running costs expenditure. The supplementary estimate will give effect to £1,738,000 of the increase.
All the increases are either offset by interdepartmental transfers or have been charged to the reserve and will not -therefore add to the planned total of public expenditure.
