Information on expenditure is published each month in the Fiscal Monitor.  The gross capital expenditure to end-December 2021 for each Department can be found on pages 19 and 20 of the Fiscal Monitor, published on 5 January 2022. 

For the Deputy’s convenience, I have included a table below detailing the gross capital expenditure position for 2021 and the 2022 gross capital allocation for each Department.

It should be noted that the 2021 expenditure figures remain provisional until they are formally ratified by the Comptroller and Auditor General following his detailed audit of each Departments’ accounts.
