§ The Minister for Rural Affairs and Local Environmental Quality (Alun Michael)
Subject to Parliamentary approval of any necessary Supplementary Estimate, the Department for Environment Food and Rural Affairs DEL will be increased by £230,638,000 from £2,805,184,000 to £3,035,822,000 and the administration costs limits will be increased by £7,560,000 from £532,910,000 to £540,470,000. Within the DEL change, the impact on resources and capital are as set out in the following table:
£000s New DEL Change Voted Non-voted Total Resource 164,459 2,303,085 505,563 2,808,548 Capital 66,179 332,745 75,745 408,490 Depreciation* - -83,495 -97,721 -181,216 Total 230,638 2,552,335 483,487 3,035,822
* Depreciation, which forms part of 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:(i) a take up of end-year flexibility of £82,043,000 programme resources and £1,453,000 administration resources as set out in the Public Expenditure 2002–2003 Provisional Outturn Paper (Cm5884); (ii) a transfer to ODPM of £1,600,000 programme resources (which includes £85,000 non-Voted resources) for Ordinance Survey; (iii) a switch of £6,780,000 capital resources to administration resources as agreed by HMT; (iv) a transfer of £2,315,000 administration resources to ODPM for Government Offices' running costs; (v) a transfer of £1,000,000 programme resources to DFID for environmental projects; (vi) a take-up of £524,000 programme resources from DTI for the Red Meat Industry Forum; (vii) a transfer of £67,000 programme resources to FCO for UNCLOS; (viii) a transfer of £4,000,000 programme resources to HMC&E for illegal imports; (ix) a transfer of £1,500,000 programme resources to FSA for illegal imports; (x) a take up of £1,500,000 administration 44WS resources and £82,500,000 programme resources for Waste Implementation as agreed by HM Treasury; (xi) a take up of £60,000 administration resources from ODPM for Local Government PSAs; (xii) the increase in Administration resources and appropriations-in-aid by £300,000 for milk quota lease recoveries; (xiii) the increase in programme resources and appropriations-in-aid by £2,983,000 for OTMS Tallow recoveries; (xiv) a take up £5,000 administration resources front ONS for Neighbourhood Statistics programme; (xv) a take up of ޣ7,000 administration resources from HMC&E or Receipt Verification work.
