asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer if he will list those public agencies whose cash limit or external financing limit is to be reduced in the light of his decision to cut national insurance surcharge.

Reductions will be made as appropriate to:

  • (i) cash limits and votes of central government departments;
  • (ii) the cash limits of the national health service;
  • (iii) the external financing limits of nationalised industries and certain other public corporations;
  • (iv) the rate support grant to local authorities.
  • The necessary calculations are now being carried out. Information on which cash limits and external financing limits are affected, and on the revised amounts, will be made available in due course.
