The Barnett Formula is applied at departmental level at Spending Reviews and at programme level at fiscal events. The total spending on UK Government programmes is not therefore generally associated with specific Barnett consequentials.

However, where changes in programme level funding have been announced at fiscal events since the 2015 Spending Review, HM Treasury’s Block Grant Transparency publication sets out the associated changes in the devolved administration block grants. This includes funding for the four programmes referred to in the question. The Block Grant Transparency publication can be found at https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/block-grant-transparency-december-2018.
