*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.

The change in the resource element of the DEL arises from the machinery-of-government changes comprising of £100,000 from Communities and Local Government and £487,000 from the Cabinet Office.

The administration budget for the Deputy Prime Minister's Office will be £2,547,000. This resource will be used for the costs of its administration.
