Government Office for London

Volume 455: debated on Tuesday 16 January 2007

To ask the Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government what the (a) programme expenditure and (b) administration costs of the Government office for London were in each year since 1996-97; and what the forecast is for 2006-07. (114744)

I refer the hon. Member to the answer given on 29 November 2006, Official Report, columns 753-54W.

The only figures to have changed since that answer are the running cost forecast and programme budget figures for 2006-07, which we would expect to change as these figures are regularly updated throughout the financial year. The running cost forecast for 2006-07 has decreased from £18.2 million to £18.0 million, as GOL has been able to cover a large proportion of its accommodation shortfall. The programme budget figure for 2006-07 has increased from £3,074 million to £3,096 million as a result of additional programme budgets which have been delegated to GOL.
