An Act to authorise the use of resources for the years ending with 31 March 2012 and 31 March 2013; to authorise the issue of sums out of the Consolidated Fund for those years and for the year ending with 31 March 2011; and to appropriate the supply authorised by this Act for the years ending with 31 March 2011 and 31 March 2012.

[8th March 2012]

Whereas the Commons of the United Kingdom in Parliament assembled have resolved to authorise the use of resources and the issue of sums out of the Consolidated Fund towards making good the supply which they have granted to Her Majesty in this Session of Parliament:—

Be it therefore enacted by the Queen’s most Excellent Majesty, by and with the advice and consent of the Lords Spiritual and Temporal, and Commons, in this present Parliament assembled, and by the authority of the same, as follows:—

Vote on account for 2012-13Edit

(1) The use of resources for the year ending with 31 March 2013 is authorised up to the amount of £233,147,903,000.
(2) Of the amount authorised by subsection (1)—

 (a) £212,774,765,000 is authorised for use for current purposes; and
(b) £20,373,138,000 is authorised for use for capital purposes.

(3) The Treasury may—

 (a) issue money out of the Consolidated Fund, and
(b) apply it in the year ending with 31 March 2013 for expenditure authorised by Parliament,

up to the amount of £205,247,220,000.

Authorisation of supplementary provision for 2011-12Edit

(1) The amount up to which authorisation was conferred for the use of resources for the year ending with 31 March 2012 is to be treated as further increased by £12,103,394,000.
(2) In relation to the further amount treated as authorised by subsection (1)—

 (a) £16,496,789,000 is to be treated as authorised for use for current purposes; and
(b) the amount up to which there is authorisation for use for capital purposes is to be treated as reduced by £4,393,395,000.

(3) The amount up to which authorisation was conferred on the Treasury—

 (a) to issue money out of the Consolidated Fund, and
(b) to apply it in the year ending with 31 March 2012 for expenditure authorised by Parliament,

is to be treated as further increased by £7,343,405,000.
(4) The increases for which subsections (1), (2)(a) and (3) provide, and the reduction for which subsection (2)(b) provides, are to be treated as having had effect from the beginning of 1 April 2011.

Appropriation of supplementary provision for 2011-12Edit

(1) For the purpose of appropriating—

 (a) the amount of resources the use of which for the year ending with 31 March 2012 is authorised by section 2(1), and
(b) the amount of money the issue of which out of the Consolidated Fund is authorised by section 2(3),

the Main Estimates Act 2011 is to be treated as having effect with the adjustments provided for in Schedule 1 to this Act.
(2) Schedule 1 specifies the amounts by which adjustments are to be treated as made to the amounts originally specified in the Scheduled Estimates in the Main Estimates Act 2011.
(3) For the purpose of making the adjustments in Schedule 1—

 (a) a negative adjustment has effect to reduce an amount of authorised expenditure and, where applied to an estimated surplus (which is expressed as if it were itself a negative amount), increases the amount of the surplus; and
(b) a positive adjustment has effect to increase an amount of authorised expenditure and, where applied to an estimated surplus, reduces it.

(4) Accordingly—

 (a) where an adjustment by a negative amount of more than the amount itself is made to an amount of authorised expenditure, what results is an estimated surplus; and
(b) where an adjustment by a positive amount of more than the amount itself is made to the amount of an estimated surplus, what results is an amount of authorised expenditure.

(5) Where, in Schedule 1, a description of matters to which expenditure may relate or from which income may arise (“description A”) differs from the description contained in the corresponding part of the Scheduled Estimates in the Schedule to the Main Estimates Act 2011 (“description B”), Schedule 1 has effect for adjusting that corresponding part by substituting description A for description B.
(6) Where, in relation to a department, other person or service to which a Scheduled Estimate in the Schedule to the Main Estimates Act 2011 relates, Schedule 1 contains a new description of matters to which expenditure may relate or from which income may arise, Schedule 1 has effect for adjusting that Scheduled Estimate by treating the new description as included in it.
(7) In this section—
“estimated surplus” has the same meaning as in the Main Estimates Act 2011;
“Main Estimates Act 2011” means the Supply and Appropriation (Main Estimates) Act 2011.
(8) The adjustments made by virtue of this section are to be treated as having had effect from the beginning of 1 April 2011.

Authorisation of excesses for 2010-11Edit

The Treasury may issue out of the Consolidated Fund and apply to the service of the year ending with 31 March 2011 the sum of £347,072,000.

Appropriation of excesses for 2010-11Edit

The sum authorised by section 4 for issue from the Consolidated Fund for application to the service of the year ending with 31 March 2011 is appropriated, and is to be treated as having been appropriated as from the date of the passing of the Appropriation Act 2011, for the services and purposes specified in Schedule 2.
