Subject to parliamentary approval of any necessary supplementary estimate, the Attorney-General’s total DEL will be increased by £1,000 from £697,852,000 to £697,853,000.
Within the total DEL change, the impact on resources and capital are 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 total DEL since capital DEL includes capital spending and to include depreciation of those assets would lead to double counting.
The Crown Prosecution Service’s (CPS) element of the Attorney-General’s total DEL will be unchanged at £641,427,000.
The movements within Resource DEL arise from:
The take-up of Departmental Unallocated Provision of £4,000,000 from non-voted to voted DEL to increase the spending on the prosecution of criminal cases.
An increase in the use of provisions for pension liabilities by £3,327,000 from voted to non-voted RDEL.
The Serious Fraud Office's (SFO) element of the Attorney-General’s total DEL will be unchanged at £41,546,000.
The movements within Resource DEL leading to a net change of £131,000 arise from:
The take-up of £ 176,000 of budget transfer from the Home Office for the NFA Action Fraud Programme.
A transfer of £45,000 from Resource DEL to Capital DEL
Total DEL is unchanged as depreciation costs are expected to increase by £176,000.
The HM Procurator-General and Treasury Solicitor (TSol) element of the Attorney-General’s total DEL will be increased by a token £1,000 from £14,879,000 to £14,880,000. This increase will occur within the administration Budget which will increase from £12,945,000 to £12,946,000.
The change in Resource DEL arises from:
A token increase of £1,000 to allow a £5,000,000 increase in appropriations in aid, arising from increased fee and disbursement from clients because of increased volume of legal and related services activity, to be included in the estimate.
