Contingencies Fund Advance

Volume 560: debated on Tuesday 19 March 2013

The Ministry of Justice requires an advance to discharge its commitments which are set out in its supplementary estimate 2012-13, published on 13 February 2013 as HC 894 (CG supply estimates, supplementary estimates).

Parliamentary approval for additional resources of £1,157 million for existing services has been sought in a supplementary estimate for the Ministry of Justice. Pending that approval, urgent expenditure estimated at £70,000,000 will be met by repayable cash advances from the Contingencies Fund.
