Subject to parliamentary approval of the necessary Request for Resources 1, the Lord Chancellor's Department Departmental Expenditure Limit for 2001–02 will be increased by £22,034,000 from £2,732,900,000 to £2,754,934,000. The increase is the net effect of take up of End Year Flexibility entitlement of: £9,000,000 in respect of Capital Modernisation Fund; £1,031,000 in respect of DEL capital expenditure; £1,355,000 in respect of an award from the Invest to Modernise Fund; £408,000 in respect of the Invest to Save Budget; awards from the Capital Modernisation Fund totalling £1,888,000 in respect of new projects and £1,174,000 from the Invest to Modernise Fund; transfers in respect of transfers of business from the Home Office in the sum of £614,000; from the Department for Work and Pensions in the sum of £20,000; from the Department for Transport, Local Government and the Regions in the sum of £100,000 and from the Ministry of Defence in the sum of £176,000. Transfers of business arising from the Machinery of Government changes of £406,000 from Cabinet Office and £5,862,000 from Home Office are also included in this supplementary estimate.

The Administration cost limit for the Lord Chancellor's Department Request for Resources 1 will be increased by £5,344,000 from £612,786,000 to £618,130,000. The increase is caused by take up of End Year Flexibility entitlement of £1,355,000; an award of £1,174,000 from the Invest to Modernise fund; Transfers in respect of transfers of business from the Home Office in the sum of £480,000; from the Ministry of Defence in the sum of £176,000; from the Department for Transport, Local Government and the Regions in the sum of £100,000 and to the Department for Work and Pensions in the sum of £200,000. Transfers of business arising from the Machinery of Government changes of £406,000 from Cabinet Office and £1,853,000 from Home Office are also included in this supplementary estimate.

The increases will be offset by transfers from the Departmental Expenditure Limits of the Home Office, Department for Work and Pensions, Department for Local Government, Transport and the Regions, and the Ministry of Defence, take-up of End Year Flexibility entitlement, an award from the Invest to Modernise Fund and awards from the Capital Modernisation Fund and will not therefore add to the planned total of public expenditure.
