§ Lord McIntosh of Haringey
My right honourable friend the Paymaster General (Dawn Primarolo) has made the following Written Ministerial Statement.
Subject to parliamentary approval of any necessary Supplementary Estimate, the HM Customs and Excise departmental expenditure limit will be increased by £135,698,000 from £1,407,608,000 to £1,543,306,000 and the administration costs limit will be increased by £34,018,000 from £1,218,491,000 to £1,252,509,000. Within the DEL change, the impact on resources and capital are as set out in the following table:
Change Voted New DEL Non-voted Total Resource 51,418 1,378,450 - 1,378,450 Capital 84,280 163,856 1,000 164,856 Depreciation* -53,168 -97,948 - -97,948 Total 82,530 1,444,358 1,000 1,445,358
* 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:
Administration costs increases of £53,168,000 from the central reserve to enable the GOGGS East building to be brought onto the department's balance sheet; a transfer of £85,000 from HM Treasury for the cost of capital charges in respect of GOGGS; and a transfer of £36,000 from the Office for National Statistics in respect of data development work. These are partially offset by a transfer of £ 1,271,000 to HM Treasury to meet the costs of the transfer of tax policy work for the first half of the financial year and virement from administration costs to programme expenditure of £18,000,000; and
Programme expenditure changes relating to virement from administration costs to programme expenditure of £18,000,000; and a transfer to the Home Office to meet additional costs of anti-terrorism work of £600,000.
The change in the capital element of the DEL arises from increases of £84,210,000 from the central reserve to enable the GOGGS East building to be brought onto the department's balance sheet; and £70,000 from the Office for National Statistics in respect of data development work.
