Written answers (Question to Public)

The Supplementary Estimates by Vote for each of the last five years, on a net voted expenditure basis are available at the following link:

Appendix 1

The tables for each year reflect the Vote structure that was in place in that year. In a number of cases, a negative amount has been included for either current or capital expenditure. These negative figures represent amounts that were available within a particular Vote to offset overspends in another area within that same Vote. For example, underspends on capital expenditure which were used to offset additional current expenditure.
