Supplementary Estimate 2018-19 — Department for Work and Pensions — 26 Feb 2019 at 19:00

The majority of MPs voted to provide the Department for Work and Pensions with an additional £2.3bn (~1.3% of the departmental budget).

The motion supported by a majority of MPs in this vote was:

  • That, for the year ending with 31 March 2019, for expenditure by the Department for Work and Pensions:
  • (1) further resources, not exceeding £880,517,000 be authorised for use for current purposes as set out in HC 1966,
  • (2) further resources, not exceeding £170,914,000 be authorised for use for capital purposes as so set out, and
  • (3) a further sum, not exceeding £1,334,611,000 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.

This vote followed a change in the department's "net cash requirement".

The total resource available to the DWP in 2016-17 was £181bn[1] so this vote is on additional funding of around 1.3%.
