§ Baroness Howells
asked Her Majesty's Government:
When they will be publishing the winter Suplementary Estimate 2003–04 for the Cabinet Office. [HL67]
§ Lord Davies of Oldham
Subject to parliamentary approval of any necessary Supplementary Estimate, the Cabinet Office DEL will be increased by £11,446,000 from £299,843,000 to £311,289.000 and the gross administration costs limits will be increased by £10,243,000 from £213,490,000 to £223,733,000. Within the DEL change, the impact on resources and capital are as set out in the following table:
New DEL £000 Change Voted Non-voted Total Resource 11,133 276,115 0 276,115 Capital 313 85,328 0 85,328 Depreciation ¹ 0 –50.154 0 –50,154 Total 11,446 311,289 0 311,289 ¹ Depreciation, which forms part of the resource DEL, is excluded from the total DEL since capital DEL includes capital spending and to include depreciation of those assets would lead to double counting.
The change in the resource element of the DEL arises from additions from the DEL reserve of £8,600,000 to support core departmental activities, additions of £2,206,000 from the Policy Innovation Fund for the newly formed Shareholder Executive and net transfers from other government departments of £327,000.
The change in the capital element of the DEL arises from additions of £23,000 from the Policy Innovation Fund for the newly formed Shareholder Executive and net transfers from other departments of £290,000.
