HC Deb 16 June 1989 vol 154 c584W
Mr. Leighton

To ask the Secretary of State for Employment to what extent and for what reasons his Department envisages needing to call on the Reserve over the planning period in Cm. 607; and if the Reserve is likely to be needed to provide for capital spending.

Mr. Cope

The Department is likely to call on the Reserve this year to the extent of £580,000 in support of end year flexibility on capital because of slippage.
