asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer if he will indicate, pursuant to the answer on 18 April, Official Report, column 244, whether a symbol relating to non-surrender to the Consolidated Fund of unused balances was likewise omitted in error from the Supply Estimates in respect of the votes sought for the purposes specified in Class V, 10, C2, and Class VIII, 4, B5; and whether he will make a statement.

[pursuant to his reply, 26 April 1985, c. 571]: No symbol is required for these subheads. The symbol regrettably omitted in error from subhead C1 of Class V, vote 10 and subhead B4 of Class VIII, vote 4 is one of those used to indicate the accounting and audit arrangements for grant in aid and certain subscriptions etc. to international organisations. (A full list of symbols can be found in the introduction to each Estimates booklet.) Subheads C2 and B5 are not grants in aid.
