Supplementary Estimates — Allocation of Additional Funds to the Foreign and Commonwealth Office — 2 Mar 2016 at 19:04

John Penrose MP, Weston-Super-Mare voted to allocate an additional £16.9m to the Foreign and Commonwealth Office.

The majority of MPs voted to allocate an additional £16.9m to the Foreign and Commonwealth Office.

The majority of MPs voted to reduce the current Foreign and Commonwealth Office resource budget by £20,292,000 and to increase the department's capital budget by £37,171,000 and to allocate the £16,879,000 additional cash required to make up the difference.

Government advice on understanding public spending[1] states: "Resource spending is money that is spent on day to day resources and administration costs. Capital spending is money that is spent on investment and things that will create growth in the future."

The motion supported by the majority of MPs taking part in this vote was:

  • That, for the year ending with 31 March 2016, for expenditure by the Foreign and Commonwealth Office:
  • (1) the resources authorised for use for current purposes be reduced by £20,292,000 as set out in HC 747,
  • (2) further resources, not exceeding £37,171,000 be authorised for use for capital purposes as so set out, and
  • (3) a further sum, not exceeding £16,879,000 be granted to Her Majesty to be issued by the Treasury out of the Consolidated Fund and applied for expenditure on the use of resources authorised by Parliament.
