1 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.

2 Capital DEL includes items treated as Resource in Estimates and Accounts, but which are treated as Capital DEL in Budgets.

3 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 (and also the Administration budget) arises from:

RfR1

transfer of £450,000 from the Department of Business, Innovation and Skills in respect of Consumer White Paper funding;virement of £1,397,000 from resource to capital to allow for increased capital investment in the OFT; andtoken increase of £1,000 to allow increase in appropriations-in-aid to be included in the Estimate.
