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 69,803,000 1,208,359,000 - 1,208,359,000 Capital - 81,836,000 1,000,000 82,836,000 Depreciation* - -52,980,000 - -52,980,000 Total 69,803,000 1,237,215,000 1,000,000 1,238,215,000
* 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.
