Departmental Public Expenditure

Volume 470: debated on Thursday 10 January 2008

To ask the Secretary of State for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs pursuant to the Winter Supplementary Estimates (HC 29), if he will break down his Department's (a) main estimate and (b) winter supplementary estimate provision by subhead in (i) near cash and (ii) non-cash terms. (174989)

Near-cash and non-cash are essentially used as Departmental Expenditure Limit (DEL) budgetary control concepts and are not specifically identified with voted resources in estimates. However, we have been able to break down net total resources for each section in the Part II: Subhead detail table of our Main Estimate and Winter Supplementary Estimate as follows:
