To ask the Secretary of State for Education and Science whether there are any changes to the cash limits for his Department's votes.

[pursuant to his reply, 2 February 1990, c. 397–98]: Subject to parliamentary approval to the necessary revised estimate, the cash limit for class XI vote 1: schools, research and miscellaneous services, will be reduced as follows:

Class XI Vote 1 (£)
Current cash limit653,421,000
Change-80,000
Revised cash limit653,341,000
The reduction results from the appropriation in aid of receipts originally expected in 1989–90 from private sector cash sponsorship for the project to build a school in Armenia following the 1988 earthquake. These more than offset increased gross provision in 1990–91 for the project which is nearing completion.
