Departmental Expenditure Limit (2010-11)

The Secretary of State for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs (Mrs Caroline Spelman): Subject to parliamentary approval of any necessary supplementary estimate, the Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs total departmental expenditure limit (DEL) will be increased by 45,893,000 (1.67%) from 2,755,111,000 to 2,801,004,000. The administration budget will remain unchanged 282,088,000. Within the DEL change, the impact on resources and capital is set out in the following table:

'000 Change New DEL
Voted Non-voted Total Voted Non-voted Total
Resource -11,848 27,591 15,743 3,695,767 -1,262,951 2,432,816
of which:            
Administration Budget - - - 282,088 - 282,088
Capital -150 30,300 30,150 122,977 454,887 577,864
Depreciation(*) - - - -100,441 -109,235 -209,676
Total -11,998 57,891 45,893 3,718,303 -917,299 2,801,004
(*)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 of 15,743,000 arises from: (i) a transfer of 172,000 to the Department of Energy and Climate Change for information services at the Committee for Climate Change; (ii) a transfer of 65,000 to the Ministry of Justice for the Tribunal Service relating to appeals for civil sanctions; (iii) a transfer of 130,000 to DEFRA from the Department for International Development for the International Treaty on Plant Genetic Resources for Food and Agriculture; (iv) a transfer of 46,000,000 from the 2011-12 ring-fenced EU disallowance provision to cover pressures in the 2010-11 budget which have arisen due to the timing of when the disallowance payments are accrued; (v) a transfer of 30,000,000 from Resource to Capital DEL for the Environment Agency (EA) in respect of flood defences where the exact nature and classification of the expenditure is determined by EA as they undertake the work; and (vi) a transfer of 150,000 from Resource to Capital DEL payments for the Fallen Stock Company.

There has also been a transfer within the resource element of the DEL of 11,591,000 from voted to non-voted, (i) 16,377,000 relating to budget transfers from the core Department (voted) to the Department's Non Departmental Public Bodies (non-voted), mainly Natural England, EA and the Joint Nature and Conservation Committee; and (ii) 4,786,000 relates to increases in income and expenditure for the Rural Payments Agency scheme payments. This change is DEL neutral, but the expenditure is classed as voted, whereas the income is classed as non-voted consolidated fund extra receipts.

There is no change in the depreciation budget.

The change in the capital element of the DEL of 30,150,000 arises from:(i) a transfer of 30,000,000 from Resource to Capital DEL for EA in respect of flood defences where the exact nature and classification

of the expenditure is determined by EA as they undertake the work; and (ii) a transfer of 150,000 from Resource to Capital DEL payments for the Fallen Stock Company.

There has also been a transfer within the capital element of the DEL of 300,000 from voted to non-voted relating to a budget transfer from the core Department (voted) to the Marine Management Organisation, a non-voted Non Departmental Public Body.
