Subject to parliamentary approval, the Department for Culture Media and Sport’s departmental expenditure limit (DEL) will be increased by £88,500,000 from £1,996,963,000 to £2,085,463,000. Within the DEL change the impact on resource 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 change in the Resource element of the DEL arises from:
Take up of £18,000,000 End Year flexibility comprising: (£10,000,000) for Museums and Galleries, and (£8,000,000) for Broadcasting; Claims on the Reserve totalling £56,000,000 comprising budgetary cover (£48,000,000) in respect of the London Organising Committee of the Olympic and Paralympic Games, (£5,000,000) for the Listed Places of Worship Scheme and (£3,000,000) for costs associated with the sale of the Tote, and an agreed transfer of £60,000 from to Capital to Resource DEL to correct a misalignment of funds in the Winter Supplementary Estimate, partially offset by transfers to other Government Departments of £10,500,000, (£8,000,000) to support Stage 2 Devolution in Northern Ireland and (£2,500,000) to Department for Communities and Local Government for the Ordnance Survey contribution.
The Capital element of the DEL has increased by £24,940,000 as a result of:
The drawdown of £25,000,000 End Year Flexibility (EYF) for the Museums and galleries, and an agreed transfer of £60,000 from Capital to Resource DEL to correct a misalignment of funds in the Winter Supplementary Estimate.
