Wales Office Spring Supplementary Estimate 2008-09

Volume 487: debated on Thursday 12 February 2009

The Welsh Assembly Government’s Departmental Expenditure Limit will be increased by £99,949,000 from £14,256,819,000 to £14,356,768,000. The increase is a result of:

(a) Take-up of £68,800,000 EYF-Capital.

(b) Capital re-profiling of £28,180,000 from 2010-11 financial year.

And also includes:

(c) Transfer of £66,000 Near-Cash from Department for Children, Schools and Families.

(d) Transfer of £17,000 Near-Cash to the Department of Industry, University and skills.

(e) Increase of £2,920,000 Capital as a result of the Warm Front initiative announced in the 2008 pre-Budget report.

The transfers will be offset within the budgets of DCSF and DIUS and the take up of the end Year Flexibility will be charged to the Reserve and will not therefore add to the planned total of public expenditure. The capital reprofiling and Warm Front additions will be met by an increase in the planned total of public expenditure as announced in the 2008 PBR.
