Mr. Cohen

To ask the Secretary of State for International Development what proposals there are to amend her Department's departmental expenditure limits for 1999–2000. [87245]

Clare Short

Subject to Parliamentary approval of the necessary Supplementary Estimate for Class VIII, Vote 1, Department for International Development: International Development, the Department expenditure limit for 1999–2000 will be increased by £10,000,000 from £1,794,764,000 to £1,804,764,000. The increase is the net effect of additional humanitarian assistance to Kosovo.

The increase will be a charge on the DEL reserve and will not therefore add to the planned total of public expenditure.
