Ministers agreed revenue cash limits when the Council of Ministers met yesterday, and backed the spending proposals put forward in the Draft Strategic Plan, which will be lodged formally with the States on Monday.
Chief Minister Frank Walker said that the figure for States spending for 2007 would be £512m, making next year the first time that the money spent by States departments will have topped half a billion pounds.
If all the figures are approved during Business Plan and Budget debates later in the year, States departments will spend an average £5,838 on every man, woman and child in the Island in 2007.
Changes to the rate system so that the States take on native welfare and residential care provision mean that an ex-tra £10m has been added to their spending.
However, they will recoup a similar amount through the new Islandwide rate.
