answer text <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>

answer text <p>At Autumn Budget 2017, HM Treasury made an additional £3 billion of funding available over the next two years – £1.5 billion in each year – so that departments and the devolved administrations can continue to prepare effectively for European Union exit.</p><p> </p><p>That is in addition to the £700 million previously made available to prepare for EU exit at Autumn Budget 2016.</p><p> </p><p>In the Spring Statement on 13 March 2018, my Rt. hon. Friend the Chief Secretary to the Treasury (Elizabeth Truss MP) laid a Written Ministerial Statement, <a href="https://www.parliament.uk/business/publications/written-questions-answers-statements/written-statements/?page=1&amp;max=20&amp;questiontype=AllQuestions&amp;house=commons%2clords&amp;uin=HCWS540" target="_blank">HCWS540</a>, setting out the full Departmental allocations of the £1.5 billion for 2018/19.</p><p> </p><p>HM Treasury approved £21.1 million of funding for the Department of Health and Social Care’s preparations for EU exit in 2018/19, including planning for ‘no deal’. Spend against this allocation for 2018/19 will be included in the 2018/19 financial accounts in due course.</p><p> </p><p>The Autumn Budget 2018 confirmed an additional £500 million of cross-Government funding for 2019/20, meaning the Government will have invested over £4 billion in preparing for EU exit since 2016. This funding will help departments manage pressures and contingencies arising from EU exit preparations which fall in the 2019/20 financial year, as well as ensuring that the United Kingdom is prepared to seize the opportunities available when we leave the EU. The Department of Health and Social Care has been allocated £50 million from this budget, as set out in the Chief Secretary’s Written Ministerial Statement <a href="https://www.parliament.uk/business/publications/written-questions-answers-statements/written-statements/?page=1&amp;max=20&amp;questiontype=AllQuestions&amp;house=commons%2clords&amp;uin=HCWS1205" target="_blank">HCWS1205</a>, laid before Parliament on the 19 December 2018.</p><p> </p><p>No written ministerial direction for expenditure on contingency planning for ‘no deal’ has been sought by the Accounting Officer for the Department.</p><p> </p><p>The Department is preparing for all eventualities and the resources available to support preparations are kept under constant review.</p>

answer text <p>EU Exit affects a number of work areas across the Department and will therefore encompass a proportion of workload for many staff, the amount of which will vary over time. Many of the same staff spend a proportion of their time preparing for leaving the EU (a) with and (b) without a deal. Those proportions vary continuously over time, so calculating a specific allocation would be disproportionately difficult.</p><p> </p> more like this
