HM Treasury has published the Main Supply Estimates for 2011-12.
The Main Supply Estimates have been presented to the House of Commons. The government seeks authority from Parliament for central government departmental expenditure for 2011-12, and for the voted element of spending plans set out in Spending Review 2010 and updated in Budget 2011.
Estimates are presented on a budgetary basis, the means by which the Treasury monitors and controls departmental spending. They include non-cash items, such as depreciation, which are excluded from the main spending totals used to present departments’ resource settlements.
