Top-down adjustment to cash payment forecasts

The core Crown cash payments for 2006/07 incorporate a top-down adjustment of $800 million to take into account the usual timing delays of departmental spending. The adjustment is made in the above table and is spread over operating ($500 million) and capital ($300 million) payments.

The level of the adjustment has been based on the analysis of previous over-forecasting by departments and a review of the actual outturn to 31 October 2006.
