§ The Chief Secretary to the Treasury (Mr. Paul Boateng)
The Treasury will publish the 2002–03 Public Expenditure Provisional Outturn White Paper on Tuesday 15 July.
The White Paper is an annual report to Parliament on the provisional outturn for public expenditure. It focuses on spending within Departmental Expenditure Limits (DEL) and Annually Managed Expenditure (AME), including information on individual Supply Estimates and administration costs limits.
The outturn figures are described as provisional because they may be revised when the department's final accounts are published, usually in the autumn.
A copy of the White Paper will be placed on the Treasury website.
