HC Deb 27 November 2003 vol 415 cc28-9WS
The Secretary of State for Trade and Industry (Ms Patricia Hewitt)

Subject to Parliamentary approval of the necessary Supplementary Estimate, UK Trade & Investment's Resource DEL will be increased by £2,000,000 from £95,048,000 to £97,048,000. Within the DEL change, the impact on resources and capital are set out in the following table:

Change Voted Non-voted Total
Resource 2,000 97,048 0 97,048
Capital 0 1,248 0 1,248
Depreciation* 0 -187 0 -187
Total 2,000 98,109 0 98,109

* 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 a transfer of resources from the Department of Trade and Industry to UK Trade & Investment of £2,000,000 in respect of the Global Partnerships programme.
