Departmental Public Expenditure

Volume 491: debated on Wednesday 22 April 2009

To ask the Secretary of State for Work and Pensions what his latest estimate is of his Department's capital expenditure in (a) 2008-09, (b) 2009-10, (c) 2010-11 and (d) 2011-12; and if he will make a statement. (268130)

The Department's Capital Budgets were published by HM Treasury as part of the pre-Budget report in November 2008. Please refer to page 214 of this report for the Department's Capital DEL—Departmental Expenditure Limit—estimated expenditure in (a) 2008-09 and planned Capital DEL expenditure in (b) 2009-10 and (c) 2010-11.

The Government have not set Departments' Capital DEL budgets for years beyond 2010-11. Capital DEL budgets for 2011-12 and beyond are a matter for the next spending review. The Government do, however, publish projections for PSNI (Public Sector Net Investment) over the forecast period at Budgets and pre-Budget reports.
