HC Deb 26 April 2004 vol 420 c761W
Mrs. Curtis-Thomas

To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department what the reasons were for the increase of £6.5 million in the grant to the Parole Board in the Spring Supplementary Estimates. [165874]

Paul Goggins

The Parole Board's grant in aid for 2004–05 is currently £4.215 million and there are no proposals to increase it.

The higher figure referred to in the Question, includes a notional additional provision shown against the Parole Board. This provision was agreed by the Treasury and is in line with Parliamentary Rules.
