Departmental Public Expenditure

Volume 473: debated on Monday 17 March 2008

To ask the Secretary of State for Innovation, Universities and Skills pursuant to the Winter Supplementary Estimates (HC 29), if he will break down his Department’s new estimate provision by subhead in (i) near cash and (ii) non-cash terms. (174998)

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, which includes both near cash and non-cash, for each section in the “Part II: Subhead detail” table of our new supply estimate as follows. The split between near cash and non-cash could be obtained only at disproportionate cost.
