NHS Funding Bill — Clause 1 — Prevention of Transferring Funds from NHS Capital Budgets to Achieve NHS Revenue Spending Requirements — 4 Feb 2020 at 17:29

The majority of MPs voted not to prevent funds being transferred from NHS capital budgets to achieve the minimum revenue spending levels set out in the Bill.

This was a division in which only MPs from constituencies in England were eligible to vote.

MPs were considering the NHS Funding Bill[1]

The amendment rejected in this vote was:

  • Amendment 3, in clause 1, page 1, line 18, at end insert—
  • “and that the sums set out in the table are not permitted to be augmented by or composed of any virements from NHS capital budgets.”

The rejected amendment was accompanied by the following explanatory statement from its proposer:

  • The amendment would stop the Secretary of State meeting the NHS England allotment for resource spending by using funds from NHS capital budgets.

Clause 1 of the Bill[2] set out minimum spending levels on the NHS for the upcoming four financial years.
