1Capital DEL includes items treated as resource in Estimates and accounts but which are treated as Capital DEL in budgets.

2Depreciation, which forms part of resource DEL, is excluded from total DEL since capital DEL includes capital spending and to include depreciation of those assets would lead to double counting.

The net reductions in resource DEL of £20,657,000 and Administration Budget of £21,957,000 are the net effect of the transfer of responsibility for the Office of Government Commerce to the Cabinet Office following the Machinery of Government transfer announced on 15 June 2010.
