Home Office: Winter Supplementary Estimate

Volume 705: debated on Tuesday 25 November 2008

My right honourable friend the Secretary of State for the Home Department (Jacqui Smith) has made the following Written Ministerial Statement.

Plans of changes to the departmental expenditure limit and administrative budget for 2008-09

Subject to parliamentary approval of the necessary supplementary estimate, the Home Office's departmental expenditure limits for 2008-09 will be decreased by £67,008,000 from £9,755,389,000 to £9,688,381,000 and the administration budget will be reduced by £29,760,000 from £429,049,000 to £399,289,000.

Within the DEL change, the impact on resources and capital are as set out in the following table

* The total of the “administration budget” and “near cash in resource DEL” figures may well be greater than total resource DEL, due to the definitions overlapping.

** 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.
