§ 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.
