HC Deb 27 November 2002 vol 395 c36WS
The Secretary of State for International Development (Clare Short)

Subject to Parliamentary approval of the necessary Supplementary Estimate the Department for International Development DEL for 2002/2003 will be increased by £37,437,000 from £3,339,521,000 to £3,376,958,000. Within the DEL change, the impact on resources and capital are as set out in the following table:

The change in the resource element of the DEL arises from: a transfer of £40,000,000 resource from the Unallocated Subhead (RfRl: E3) to the Bilateral Subhead; to give effect to the transfer of £3,700,000 resource from the Central Reserve as a contribution to the Commonwealth Education Fund; to give effect to the take up of DEL end year flexibility of £28,757,000 resource on programme expenditure; a transfer of £20,000 resource to the Home Office representing a contribution to membership of the Group of States Against Corruption (GRECO); a transfer of £5,000,000 resource from the Foreign and Commonwealth Office to Global Conflict Prevention.

The increase will be met by inter-departmental transfers or from the DEL Reserve and will not therefore add to the planned total of public expenditure.
