1. As households can receive both heating and insulation measures, figures in this table are not comparable with the number of households awaiting measures.
2. The lack of invoice for a job is not necessarily related to whether the work has been physically carried out.

1. These are actual gross expenditure figures of the Nuclear Directorate (ND) itself for 2003-04 to 2007-08 and forecast for 2008-09.
2. ND recovers some 97 per cent. of these nuclear installations costs (and a pro rata share of the additional associated HSE overhead and central costs) as income through charges to industry under the Nuclear Installations Act 1965 and Health and Safety (Fees) (Amendment) Regulations 2007. Since 2007-08 this has also included 100 per cent. recovery of the Office for Civil Nuclear Security costs (and a pro rata share of the additional associated HSE overhead and central costs) recovered under the Anti-terrorism, Crime and Security Act 2001, the Energy Act 2004, the extant security provisions of the Nuclear Installations Act 1965 (as amended) and, in respect of nuclear material, the Import of Goods (Control) Order 1954.
3. HSE has issued indicative ND budget allocations for 2009-10 and 2010-11 (£29,973k and £30,930k respectively) but these will shortly be revised as part of HSE's annual planning process to reflect expected activity in these years.
4. HSE will set budgets for 2011-12 and beyond upon receipt of its spending review 2010 settlement in due course.
5. The figures for 2007-08 onwards include the Office for Civil Nuclear Security and the UK Safeguards Office who joined HSE from the Department for Trade and Industry on 1 April 2007 (£2.3 million and £0.3 million respectively).
6. The figures in 2007-08 and previous to this include costs of HSE Corporate Topic Groups which ND managed on behalf of HSE.
