HC Deb 17 June 2002 vol 387 cc129-30W

Mr. Bercow: To ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer how much and what proportion of the departmental expenditure limit for 2002–03 had been spent by 31 May; what the figures were for 2001–02; and if he will make a statement. [61002]

Mr. Boateng: Reliable estimates for 2002–03 spending to 31 may are not available. Estimated outturn spending figures for 2001–02 can be found in Public Expenditure Statistical Analyses 2002–03, published in May 2002 as Command Paper 5401.
