About this visualisation
You can use this tool to explore the 2021-22 Draft Budget allocations at different levels, from portfolio down to Budget Expenditure Line (the most detailed level available).
The values shown in the diagram and table are revenue plus capital allocations. The size of each node is scaled according to its proportion of the budget level. Different colours represent different portfolios.
The table also shows corresponding allocations in the 2020-21 Final Budget (as restated in the Draft Budget documentation) along with cash and percentage change. Note that the large increase in Agriculture EU Pillar 1 Direct Payments is due to these payments in 2021-22 coming via the UK Government rather than the EU.
Under 'view options', you can select to display the percentage change on the 2020-21 Final Budget. In this view, the circle sizes scale with the year-on-year difference in budget allocation. The node colours are red for a decrease and blue for an increase with darker shades indicating a larger percentage change.
