Departmental Public Expenditure

Volume 477: debated on Thursday 12 June 2008

To ask the Secretary of State for Innovation, Universities and Skills if he will provide a breakdown of the amount and proportion of his Department’s budget which is not devolved to non-departmental public bodies by main budget heading. (207552)

The proportion of the Department’s net budget (including planned receipts) that is not devolved to non-departmental public bodies is -£4.47 billion which is -25.02 per cent. of the overall Department voted supply estimate for 2007-08 of £17.9 billion.

This includes a receipt from DCSF of £7.165 billion. If this figure is excluded from the calculation, £2.69 billion is spent centrally, which is 15.03 per cent. of the overall Department voted estimate for 2007-08 of £17.9 billion. A full breakdown of the budget headings that comprise figure can be found in the DIUS Spring Supplementary Estimate published March 2008:

Please note that these are budgeted figures not the final out-turn which is yet to be finalised for the year-end accounts.
