Below is the text of the written answers relating to Prime Minister’s Question Time from 31st January 1997.


Cabinet Office

Mr. Peter Atkinson: To ask the Prime Minister what proposals there are to change the 1997-97 cash limit or running costs limit for the Cabinet Office other services vote.

The Prime Minister: The cash limit for the Cabinet Office, other services, class XVIII, vote 1, will be reduced by £637,000 from £42,036,000 to £41,399,000 and the running costs limit will be reduced by £637,000 from £43,153,000 to £42,516,000. This is to reflect a transfer of provision to the Office of Public Service, class XVII, vote 1, for superannuation awarding services and accommodation services, partially offset by a transfer of provision from the Office of Public Service towards the cost of early staff departures.
