<p>HM Treasury has allocated over £4.2 billion of additional funding to departments and the Devolved Administrations for EU exit preparations so far. This breaks down as:</p><ul><li><p>£412m of additional funding over the spending review period for the Department for Exiting the European Union, Department for International Trade and the Foreign &amp; Commonwealth Office at Autumn Statement 2016.</p></li><li><p>£286m of additional funding for 17/18 (a full breakdown of which can be found in Supplementary Estimates 17/18: https://www.gov.uk/government/uploads/system/uploads/attachment_data/file/679738/PU2137_Supplementary_estimates_web.pdf.)</p></li><li><p>Over £1.5bn of additional funding for 18/19. A full breakdown of the allocations can be found in the Chief Secretary’s Written Ministerial Statement, HCWS540, laid on the 13th March (https://www.parliament.uk/business/publications/written-questions-answers-statements/written-statement/Commons/2018-03-13/HCWS540/)</p></li><li><p>Over £2bn of additional funding for 19/20. A full breakdown of the allocations can be found in the Chief Secretary’s Written Ministerial Statement, HCWS1205, laid on the 18th December (https://www.parliament.uk/business/publications/written-questions-answers-statements/written-statement/Commons/2018-12-18/HCWS1205/)</p></li></ul><p>This funding is in addition to departments efforts to reprioritise from business as usual toward preparations for the UK’s departure from the EU. As such, departments are best placed to provide an estimate of spend to date. HM Treasury requires departments to achieve value for money as part of receiving these additional funds, in line with the guidance set out in Managing Public Money. Two ministerial directions were made in relation to EU Exit in 2018 – by Defra and DfT. This is publicly available here researchbriefings.files.parliament.uk/documents/CBP-8412/CBP-8412.pdf. The Treasury does not centrally hold records for each direction, further information should be requested from the relevant departments.</p>
