Departmental Public Expenditure

Volume 486: debated on Wednesday 21 January 2009

To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs what the (a) underspend and (b) overspend on country budgets in his Department was in the last financial year for which figures are available, broken down by country. (242183)

The underspend and overspend, on administration budgets by country, for 2007-08 are shown in the following table. Programme budgets have not been included as they are not readily broken down by country and to do so would incur disproportionate cost.
