the Main Estimates Act 2013 is to be treated as having effect with the adjustments provided for in Schedule 1 to this Act.

(2) In Schedule 1—

(a) Part 1 contains new Tables, which are to be treated as if they had been Scheduled Estimates in the Main Estimates Act 2013; and

(b) Part 2 specifies the amounts by which adjustments are to be treated as made to the amounts originally specified in the Scheduled Estimates in that Act.

(4) Accordingly—

(5) Where, in Part 2 of 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 2013 (“description B”) , Part 2 of 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 2013 relates, Part 2 of Schedule 1 contains a new description of matters to which expenditure may relate or from which income may arise, that Part has effect for adjusting that Scheduled Estimate by treating the new description as included in it.

(3) For the purpose of making the adjustments in Schedule 2 an adjustment has effect to increase an amount of authorised expenditure and, where applied to an estimated surplus, reduces it.

(4) Accordingly, where an adjustment of more than the amount itself is made to the amount of an estimated surplus, what results is an amount of authorised expenditure.
