§ Mr. Matthew Taylor
To ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer if the present public expenditure cash planning total for the year 2001–02 will remain unchanged when the Comprehensive Spending Review is rolled forward in 2000; and if he will make a statement. 
§ Mr. Andrew Smith
The Spending Review in 2000 will roll forward the spending plans agreed in the Comprehensive Spending Review for a further two years. The third year of the current plans (2001–02) will become the first year of the new planning period.
Public spending classified within the control regime as Annually Managed Expenditure continues to be planned and managed on an annual basis; the level of Annually Managed Expenditure for 2001–02, and hence of Total Managed Expenditure, will be reviewed again in 2000.
