Notes

DEL = Departmental Expenditure Limit

AME = Annually Managed Expenditure

1. Network Rail was reclassified into the public sector during the 2014/15 financial year and its Capital spending is reported in full in AME from that year onwards. For earlier years, the department's Capital grant to Network Rail (which funded some but not all of its spending) was reported in DEL. The approximate effect of this change was to increase reported spending by between £2.5bn and £3.0bn per year from 2014/15 onwards, relative to the previous arrangements.

2. Figures for 2015/16 are published budgets for the year. Outturn figures will be available when the 2015/16 annual report and accounts is published later in the year.

These figures do not include spending by Transport for London and other local government bodies, or by the devolved administrations.

This information is taken from the Core Tables of the department’s 2014/15 annual report and accounts, which are published here:
