HL Deb 13 December 2004 vol 667 cc55-6WA
Lord Laird

asked Her Majesty's Government:

Further to the Written Answer by the Lord President on 1 December (WA 5), why there was an underspend for the Northern Ireland Department of Culture, Arts and Leisure in 2003–04; which sections were underspent; and by how much. [HL264]

Baroness Amos

I refer the noble Lord to the Written Answer given on 18 October (WA 70), which disclosed outline details of the department's underspend for 2003–04 based on the latest unaudited results available at the time.

The department's audited resource account has now been laid before Parliament and details of the variance between the departmental budget and actual expenditure incurred for the year may be found therein.
