asked the Prime Minister how the Government contribution to the Lord Mayor of Bradford's appeal fund will be financed.

A supplementary estimate on the Central Environmental Services Vote (class VIII, vote 2) will be presented in due course to cover the urgent expenditure on this new service. Pending parliamentary approval of this supplementary estimate, the Government's contribution of £¼ million to the Lord Mayor of Bradford's appeal fund will be met by a repayable advance from the Contingencies Fund. The cash limit is being increased by £250,000 from £143,025,000 to £143,275,000; this sum will be charged to the Reserve and therefore does not add to the planning total of public expenditure.
