The Lord President of the Council (Baroness Royall of Blaisdon): My right honourable friend the Secretary of State for Northern Ireland (Shaun Woodward) has made the following Ministerial Statement:
Subject to parliamentary approval the Northern Ireland Office (NIO) will be taking a 2008/09 Spring Supplementary Estimate. The effect this will have is to increase the NIO's DEL by £146,802,000 from £1,215,517,000 to £1,362,319,000.
The change in total DEL of £146,802,000 relates to the draw down of End Year Flexibility of £89,334,000 (£81,534,000 resource and £7,800,000 capital); rephasing of non-cash budgets from 2009/10 into 2008/09 of £12,184,000 for PSNI and Compensation Agency; additional funding of £12,250,000 for the implementation of FRS 17 and FRS 26; and resource and capital budget transfers with other government departments resulting in a net increase of £272,000.
The take up of End Year Flexibility is required to supplement baselines in Political Directorate, Criminal Justice Directorate, Northern Ireland Prison Service, Central Administration, Public Prosecution Service, Youth Justice Agency, Policing Non-Severance, Bloody Sunday Inquiry, Policing and Security and Compensation Agency.
The administration budget decreases by £1,260,000 from £77,285,000 to £76,025,000. This is due to the transfer of £1,726,000 from Administration to Programme for Forensic Science Northern Ireland and Life Sentence Review Commissioners. Additionally there are resource budget transfers of £500,000 from the Department of Finance and Personnel, Northern Ireland for accommodation costs; £28,000 to the Office of the First Minister and Deputy First Minister, Northern Ireland for staff costs; and £6,000 to the Department of Innovation, Universities and Skills for the Skills Strategy for Government programme.
The increase in capital DEL of £7,960,000 reflects the budget transfer of £160,000 from the Department of Finance and Personnel, Northern Ireland for energy costs in the Northern Ireland Prison Service and the take up of £7,800,000 End Year Flexibility to meet additional capital requirements in the Northern Ireland Prison Service.
The Northern Ireland Executive DEL will increase by £182,606,000 from £8,881,173,000 to £9,063,779,000.
The change reflects the take up of End Year Flexibility of £225,000,000 (£125,000,000 resource and £100,000,000 capital); additions of £1,809,000 arising from the 2008 Pre Budget Report; net outward budget transfers to other departments of £2,748,000; a reduction of £50,880,000 for Northern Ireland Water as a result of it becoming a Government Owned Company; and an increase of £9,425,000 to take account of capital reprofiling from 2010-11.
