Contingencies Fund Advance

Volume 675: debated on Monday 27 April 2020

HM Revenue and Customs will incur new expenditure in connection with the Government’s response to the coronavirus covid-19 pandemic in 2020-21.

Parliamentary approval for additional resources of £42,000,000,000 for this new expenditure will be sought in the main estimate 2020-21 for HM Revenue and Customs. Pending that approval, urgent expenditure estimated at £42,000,000,000 will be met by repayable cash advances from the Contingencies Fund.
