Private Finance Initiative

Volume 698: debated on Monday 21 January 2008

asked Her Majesty's Government:

What projections exist for increased private finance initiative contracts in 2008-09 in the United Kingdom; and what are the estimated debts arising from them to be incurred by the Exchequer. [HL1196]

Projections of future PFI projects are published at the Pre-Budget Report and Budget each year. The most recent can be found in tables 17 to 19 of PBR/CSR 2007: the economy and public finance—supplementary charts and tables, which is available from the Treasury website at economy907.pdf.

These tables show the total capital value of the PFI projects, the estimated capital spend in 2007-08 and 2008-09 and the estimated future unitary charge payments.
