1. These figures combine the sums payable directly from the Consolidated Fund with the supplements provided by the Royal Trustees from the grant made to them in the Vote for Economic and Financial Administration: Treasury (Class XIII, Vote 4). For 1979, they include the additional provision made in a Winter Supplementary Estimate. All the increases are directly linked to increased expenses incurred in carrying out the Royal duties.
2. The figures for 1980 make provision for price increases consistent with those for cash limits on central government expenditure generally. No provision is made for staff pay increases from 1 April 1980; these are covered in the central pay Vote (Class XIII Vote 31). Where appropriate, the figures for 1980 include provision for stationery etc. hitherto met from the Stationery and Printing Vote (Class XIV Vote 3 in 1979–80 Supply Estimates) accounted for by Her Majesty's Stationery Office.
3. A sum of £20,000 a year is payable from the Consolidated Fund in respect of HRH The Prince Andrew from 19 February 1978 when he attained the age of 18. Her Majesty has made an order under section 4 of the Civil List Act 1952 limiting the amounts to be paid to him from 1980 to £4,500 per annum; the balance will be accumulated by the Royal Trustees.
4. Her Majesty paid £218,200 into the Consolidated Fund in respect of payments made in 1979 to the four members of the Royal Family whose expenses are met under section 3 of the Civil List Act 1972; a similar payment of £248,000 will be made for 1980.
