§ The Secretary of State for Culture, Media and Sport (Tessa Jowell)
Subject to Parliamentary approval of the necessary supplementary estimate, the Department for Culture, Media and Sport DEL will be increased by £144,665,000 from £1,401,271,000 to £1,545,936,000 and the administration costs limits will be increased by £3,005,000 from £44,182,000 to £47,187,000.
Within the DEL change, the impact on resources and capital are as set out in the following table:
New DEL Change Voted Non-voted Total Resource 24,831,000 195,840,000 1,229,799,000 1,425,639,000 Capital 119,834,000 109,551,000 98,054,000 207,605,000 Depreciation* 0 -3,555,000 83,753,000 -87,308,000 Total 144,665,000 301.386,000 1,244,100,000 1,545,936,000
* 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 transfers to the Office of the Deputy Prime Minister of £125,000 toward costs of reimbursing the Ordnance Survey under the Pan Government Agreement; a transfer from the Department for Education and Skills of £1,250,000 toward the costs of strategic commissioning of educational initiatives in museums and galleries and £130,000 for funding of the Club Links sporting programme; transfers to the Department for Education and Skills of £37,000,000 for funding of the School Sports Co-ordinator programme and £300,000 for funding of the schoolteachers' coaching programme; transfers from the Home Office of 18WS £2,000,000 for match funding of the Step into Sport volunteer initiative and £134,000 for match funding of the Public Library Volunteer Scheme; and £104,794,000 other Resource DEL to fund ongoing programmes.
The increase in the Department's administration costs limit arises from the transfer of £20,000 administration costs from the Office of the Deputy Prime Minister toward the costs of local public service agreements and transfer of £762,000 administration costs to the Office of the Deputy Prime Minister toward the administration costs of Government Offices; and take up of £3,747,000 of administration costs end year flexibility as set out in the Public Expenditure Outturn White Paper (Cm 5884).
The change in the capital element of the DEL arises from take up of end year flexibility as set out in the Public Expenditure Outturn White Paper (Cm 5884) of £5,000,000 for further development of Culture Online; £3,256,000 for the royal parks and £62,521,000 other Capital DEL to fund ongoing programmes.
The increases will be offset by inter-departmental transfers and drawdown of end year flexibility entitlement and will not therefore add to the planned total of public expenditure.
