1 The total of the ‘Administration Budget’ and ‘Near-Cash in Resource DEL’ figures may ^ell 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 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 arises from:
