Main Supply Estimates 2017 to 2018
HM Treasury has published the central government main supply estimates for 2017 to 2018.
The main supply estimates have been presented to the House of Commons today (19 April 2017). The government seeks parliamentary authority for central government departmental expenditure for 2017 to 2018, and for the voted element of spending plans originally set out in Spending Review 2015 and updated in Spring Budget 2017.
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.
