In addition to direct expenditure, the share of administration costs allocated to the Justice Portfolio is £8m. This gives total net expenditure of £2,413m.

Explanation of Major Variances greater than £3m:

Note 1 Additional Scottish Legal Aid Board grant-in-aid drawdown for working capital purposes.
Note 2 Variance due to demand-led activity within Police and Fire Pensions.
Note 3 Additional Scottish Fire and Rescue Service grant-in-aid drawdown for working capital purposes.
Note 4 Variance due to Scottish Prison Service asset impairments being lower than expected.
Note 5 £4m as a result of revised timing of UK Government-led projects within the Emergency Services Mobile Communications Programme. Further £4m following Emergency Responder Telecommunications costs reclassification with additional £1m in other minor variances.

Remaining £4m consists of other minor variances across a number of programmes within the portfolio.
