Public Spending

My right honourable friend the Chief Secretary to the Treasury (Liz Truss) has today made the following Written Ministerial Statement.

HM Treasury, along with all of HM Government, is committed to ensuring that we make a success of EU-exit. At Autumn Budget 2017, my right honourable friend the Chancellor of the Exchequer (Philip Hammond) committed £3 billion to help departments and devolved administrations make necessary preparations for EU-exit in 2018-19 and 2019-20; this was subsequently increased by £0.5bn in the 2018 Budget, meaning the Government has invested over £4bn in preparing for EU-exit since 2016. Working with colleagues across Government to deliver on the referendum while protecting jobs, businesses and prosperity and to support departments in planning for EU-exit, HM Treasury has allocated the following funding to departments for financial year 2019-20:
