§ Mr. Younger
Subject to parliamentary approval of the necessary Winter Supplementary Estimate, the cash limit on Class XV, Vote 17, the national library of Scotland, will be increased by £95,000 from £2,744,000 to £2,839,000. The increase is a consequence of the need to meet certain contractual payments in respect of the Scottish libraries co-operative automation project —SCOLCAP—and the need to meet a shortfall in receipts because of slippage in SCOLCAP implementations. This increase is fully offset by a corresponding reduction in the cash limit for Class XV, Vote 15 — Education, Libraries, Arts and Social Work, Scotland — from £111,823,000 to £111,728,000 and therefore does not involve any increase to the public expenditure planning total.
