Public Expenditure

Volume 475: debated on Thursday 15 May 2008

To ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer whether the figures in tables 1.7 and 1.10 of Public Expenditure Statistical Analysis 2008, HC489, 2007-08, are presented gross or net of operating and non-operating appropriations in aid. (205310)

The figures in tables 1.7 and 1.10 are presented net of income treated as negative DEL. Operating and non-operating appropriations in aid is an Estimates term. Budgeting treatment does not follow from the Estimates treatment; this is explained in the Consolidated Budgeting Guidance, which can be viewed at the following link:

To ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer with reference to tables 1.7 and 1.10 of Public Expenditure Statistical Analysis 2008, HC 489, if he will provide a breakdown of the equivalent figures for 2001-02 on the same basis. (205360)

Public Expenditure Statistical Analysis (PESA) 2007, CM7091, provides data for 2001-02. However data for 2001-02 has since been archived, and due to Machinery of Government and Classification changes, data for 2001-02 is not available on the same basis as the data provided in PESA 2008.
