Subject to parliamentary approval of any necessary supplementary estimate, the Foreign and Commonwealth Office departmental expenditure limit (DEL) will be increased by £75,228,000 from the £2,223,026,000 in the winter supplementary estimate to £2,298,254,000. The administration budget will be increased by £6,059,000 from the £484,698,000 in the winter supplementary estimate to £490,757,000. Within the DEL change, the impact on resources and capital are as set out in the following table:
*Capital DEL includes items treated as resource in Estimates and accounts but which are treated as Capital DEL in budgets.
**Depreciation, which forms part of resource DEL, is excluded from the total DEL since capital DEL includes capital spending and to include depreciation of those assets would lead to double counting.
