The Government would prefer the UK to leave the EU with a deal and, in the event that the UK leaves the EU with a new deal, the Department’s assessment is that access to medicines and medical devices will not change for industry or the National Health Service.</p><p>While the Prime Minister is confident that he can strike a new arrangement with the EU, it is vital that we prepare for a ‘no deal’ outcome. Therefore, as a responsible Government, we continue to take steps to ensure the supply of medicines and medical products is uninterrupted in a ‘no deal’ scenario.</p><p>On 26 June, we wrote to suppliers of medicines to the UK from or via the EU or European Economic Area setting out our continuing multi-layered approach to ensure the continuity of supply of all medicines and medical products in a potential ‘no deal’ exit scenario on 31 October.</p><p>Further details can be found at the following link:</p><p><a href="https://www.gov.uk/government/news/medicines-and-medical-products-supply-government-updates-no-deal-brexit-plans" target="_blank">https://www.gov.uk/government/news/medicines-and-medical-products-supply-government-updates-no-deal-brexit-plans</a></p><p>Ahead of 31 October, all necessary funding will be made available to support our ‘no deal’ preparations. On 1 August, Her Majesty’s Treasury announced an additional £434 million made available to help ensure continuity of supply of vital medicines and medical products, including through freight capacity, warehousing and stockpiling.</p><p>We are confident that the Department is doing everything appropriate to prepare for a possible ‘no deal’ EU exit on 31 October. We are working with our partners, including suppliers, freight companies and the health and social care system and our plans should ensure the supply of medicines and medical products remains uninterrupted.</p>

star this property answer text <p>​​Through the sale, the government has exchanged a stream of uncertain future cash flows spread over thirty years for a certain lump sum now. When assessing whether or not to sell the loans, the government therefore has to determine today’s value of those future cash flows to be able to compare it against the price being offered by the market. To make this assessment, the government forecasts the repayments and then takes into account: the time value of money, the effect of inflation, the riskiness of the asset, and the opportunity cost of having money tied up in that asset that could otherwise be used for purposes or policies with greater social or economic returns. This follows the guidance set out in Her Majesty’s Treasury’s (HM Treasury) Green Book:</p><p> </p><p><a href="https://assets.publishing.service.gov.uk/government/uploads/system/uploads/attachment_data/file/191488/Green_book_supplementary_guidance_asset_valuation.pdf" target="_blank">https://assets.publishing.service.gov.uk/government/uploads/system/uploads/attachment_data/file/191488/Green_book_supplementary_guidance_asset_valuation.pdf</a>.</p><p> </p><p>​In accordance with this assessment, the government has concluded that the sale achieved value for money in accordance with HM Treasury’s Green Book guidance.</p>
