UK Statistics Authority (Contingencies Fund Advance)

Volume 593: debated on Friday 27 February 2015

The Cabinet Office wishes to report that a cash advance from the Contingencies Fund has been sought for the UK Statistics Authority (referred to as the Statistics Board in the Statistics and Registration Service Act 2007). The advance is required in order to meet an urgent cash requirement on services.

Parliamentary approval for additional resources of £15,000,000 from the Reserve will be sought in a Supplementary Estimate for the Statistics Board. Pending that approval, urgent expenditure estimated at £15,000,000 will be met by repayable cash advances from the Contingencies Fund.
