The main supply estimates have been presented to the House of Commons today (20 April 2016). The government seeks parliamentary authority for central government departmental expenditure for 2016 to 2017, and for the voted element of spending plans originally set out in Spending Review 2015 and updated in Budget 2016.
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.
This page also includes the estimate for the House of Commons: Members.
