Departmental Expenditure Limits

The Minister for Business, Innovation and Skills (Mr. Pat McFadden): Subject to parliamentary approval of the necessary Supplementary Estimate, the Department for Business, Innovation and Skills' DEL will be increased by £1,240,523,000 from £21,829,701,000 to £23,070,224,000 and the Administration budget will be increased by £1,220,000 from £357,473,000 to £358,693,000.

The total of the 'Administration Budget' and 'Near Cash in Resource DEL' figures may well be greater than total Resource DEL, due to the definitions overlapping.
(**)Capital DEL includes items treated as Resource in Estimates and Accounts, but which are treated as Capital DEL in Budgets.
(***)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:

RfR1

i) a Reserve claim of £85,000,000 of voted non-cash for the Automotive Assistance Programme;

ii) a Reserve claim of £48,500,000 for Enterprise Fund Guarantees;
