To ask the Secretary of State for Transport what changes he proposes to make to the cash limit and running costs limit for his Department.

Subject to parliamentary approval of the necessary supplementary and revised estimates, the cash limits in class VII will be changed as follows:

Current cash limit £000Change £000Revised cash limit £000
Class VII Vote 2256,266-3,030253,236
Class VII Vote 4129,904+ 3,005132,909
These changes to the cash limits take account of the following transfers from class VII vote 2:

  • (a) £2,813,000 to class VII vote 4 of certain departmental running costs;
  • (b) £192,000 to class VII vote 4 as a result of the transfer of responsibility for medical fees for heavy goods vehicle and public service vehicle driving licence applications to the Driver and Vehicle Licensing Agency. These fees will be reclassified as running costs; and
  • (c) £25,000 of departmental running costs to class IX vote 3 for some civil aviation services.
  • The Department's running cost limit has been increased from £320,734,000 to £320,901,000.

    The changes do not add to the planned total of public expenditure.
