The interactive diagram lets you see the Draft Budget allocations at different levels, from portfolio down to Budget Expenditure Line (the most detailed level available).

The values displayed are revenue plus capital allocations. The size of each circle is scaled according to its proportion of the Budget level. The colours represent different portfolios. Further details are given in the 'Budget information' drop-down.

Under ‘view options’, you can select a comparison of the Budget with the previous financial year (the First Supplementary Budget 2019-20). Cash or real-terms percentage change can be displayed.

In these views, the circle colours are red for a decrease and blue for an increase with darker shades indicating a larger percentage change. The circle sizes scale with the absolute change.

A datasheet containing the information presented can be downloaded here.
