[10th July 2003]

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:--

1 Use of resources for the year ending with 31st March 2004

The use of resources for the service of the year ending with 31st March 2004 is authorised to the amount of £203,154,789,000.

2 Issue out of the Consolidated Fund for the year ending with 31st March 2004

The Treasury may issue out of the Consolidated Fund of the United Kingdom and apply to the service of the year ending with 31st March 2004 the sum of £172,371,769,000.

3 Appropriation of amounts and sums voted for supply services and limits on appropriations in aid

(1) All the amounts and sums authorised by this Act and the other Acts mentioned in Schedule 1 to this Act, totalling, as is shown in the said Schedule, £389,429,828,617.37 in amounts of resources authorised for use and £320,543,689,750.09 in sums authorised for issue from the Consolidated Fund, are appropriated, and shall be deemed to have been appropriated as from the date of the passing of the Acts mentioned in the said Schedule 1, for the services and purposes specified in Schedule 2 to this Act.

(2) Part 1 of Schedule 2 also sets out modifications of the limits set for the purposes of section 2 of the Government Resources and Accounts Act 2000 on the resources applicable as appropriations in aid for the year that ended with 31st March 2002.

(3) Part 2 of Schedule 2 also sets out modifications of the limits set for the purposes of section 2 of the Government Resources and Accounts Act 2000 on the resources applicable as appropriations in aid for the year that ended with 31st March 2003, for the services and purposes specified in that Part of that Schedule.

(4) Part 3 of Schedule 2 also sets out the limits for the purposes of section 2 of the Government Resources and Accounts Act 2000 on the resources applicable as appropriations in aid for the year that ended with 31st March 2003, for the services and purposes specified in that Part of that Schedule.

(5) Parts 4 to 61 of Schedule 2 also set out the limits for the purposes of section 2 of the Government Resources and Accounts Act 2000 on the resources applicable as appropriations in aid for the year ending with 31st March 2004, for the services and purposes specified in those Parts of that Schedule.

(6) The limits as modified by Part 1 of Schedule 2 shall be deemed to have been in force from 8th March 2003.

(7) The limits as modified by Part 2 and those set out in Part 3 of Schedule 2 shall be deemed to have been in force from 27th November 2002.

(8) Subsection (7), so far as it relates to--

(a) a reduction set out in the Table in Part 2 of Schedule 2, or

(b) a modification so set out which, according to a note to that Part, comprises a reduction,

does not affect the validity of anything to which subsection (9) applies.

(9) This subsection applies to anything done in accordance with a direction given by the Treasury for the purposes of section 2 of the Government Resources and Accounts Act 2000 during the year that ended with 31st March 2003 if (disregarding subsection (7)) --

(a) at the time it was done the direction complied with the limit set under a previous Appropriation Act, or

(b) that direction would have complied with the limit then in force if that limit had been been increased as mentioned in the note in question for the period ending with 27th February 2003.

(10) The limits set out in Parts 4 to 61 of Schedule 2 shall be deemed to have been in force from 6th May 2003.

(11) A direction given after the passing of this Act by the Treasury for authorising the application of resources as appropriations in aid for a particular year--

(a) may, to the extent of any excess proposed in Estimates or in a Statement of Excesses laid before the House of Commons, authorise appropriations in aid in excess of the relevant limit set for that year for the purposes of section 2 of the Government Resources and Accounts Act 2000 by this Act or a previous Appropriation Act; but

(b) where the limit so set has not, by 12th August following the giving of the direction, been increased by a subsequent Appropriation Act or has by that date been so increased by less than the excess, shall be deemed to have authorised appropriations in aid only up to that limit or, as the case may be, up to that limit as so increased.

(12) The abstracts of Schedule 1 and of Schedule 2 which are annexed to this Act shall have effect as part of this Act.

4 Repeals

The enactments mentioned in Schedule 3 are hereby repealed.
