International Development written statement – made on 23rd November 2010.
Subject to parliamentary approval of the necessary supplementary estimate, the Department for International Development's departmental expenditure limit (DEL) will be reduced by £74,465,000 from £7,618,569,000 to £7,544,104,000.
Within the DEL change, the impact on resources and capital are as set out in the following table:
|Capital DEL (1)||203,001||-202,736||1,737,001||-180,736||1,556,265|
|Less Depreciation (2)||-||-||-21,000||-||-21,000|
|(1) Capital DEL includes items treated as resource in Estimates and Accounts but which are treated as Capital DEL in budgets. |
(2) Depreciation, which forms part of the resource DEL, is excluded from the total DEL, since capital DEL includes capital spending and to include depreciation of these assets would lead to double counting.
The change in the Resource element of DEL arises from:
