Provisional Outturn for Public Expenditure (2008-09)

Volume 496: debated on Thursday 16 July 2009

The Treasury is today publishing the “Public Expenditure 2008-09 Provisional Outturn” White Paper.

The White Paper is an annual report to Parliament on the provisional outturn for public expenditure. It focuses on spending within departmental expenditure limits (DEL) and annually managed expenditure (AME), and includes information on individual supply estimates, and administration costs and near-cash limits.

The outturn figures are described as provisional because, in some cases, they will be revised when Departments publish their final accounts.

A copy of the White Paper will be available in the Libraries of both Houses and will be accessible on the Treasury website.
