Public Expenditure

Volume 684: debated on Monday 10 July 2006

My right honourable friend the Chief Secretary to the Treasury (Mr Stephen Timms) has made the following Written Ministerial Statement.

The Treasury will publish the 2005-06 public expenditure provisional out-turn White Paper on Thursday 20 July.

The White Paper is an annual report to Parliament on the provisional out-turn for public expenditure. It focuses on spending within departmental expenditure limits (DEL) and annually managed expenditure (AME), including information on individual supply estimates and administration costs limits. The out-turn figures are described as provisional because they may be revised when departments’ final accounts are published.

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