Main Supply Estimates
The Financial Secretary to the Treasury, Mark Hoban, today presented to the House of Commons the Main Supply Estimates for 2010-11. The Main Supply Estimates seek parliamentary authority for departmental spending plans for the current financial year.
The Main Supply Estimates 2010-11 seek parliamentary authority for voted supply provision of £494.7 billion of net resources and a net cash requirement of £ 464.5 billion, which is lower than originally planned due to the £6.2 billion reductions announced on 24 May. The amounts sought are consistent with the spending plans published in the associated Supplementary Budgetary Information (SBI) booklet, which is published alongside the Main Supply Estimates today.
Supplementary Budgetary Information (SBI)
The SBI booklet provides a read-across between expenditure plans in the Main Supply Estimates and the budgetary information, by which departments are controlled by the Treasury.
Notes for editors
The Treasury presents Main Supply Estimates annually, usually after the Budget, and publishes the Supplementary Budgetary Information (SBI) booklet alongside. This year it incoroprates the reductions announced on 24 May to 2010-11 budgets.
All these publications are avaliable from Stationery Office bookshops or can be found on the respective websites of HM Treasury and the independent organisations listed above.
