star this property answer text <p>The Department is tasked with successfully delivering the UK’s exit from the European Union. A key element of this is ensuring preparation for all possible scenarios, including leaving the EU without a deal.</p><p>Budget 2018 confirmed an additional £500 million of funding from the reserve for 2019-20, meaning the government will have invested over £4 billion in preparing for EU exit since 2016.</p><p>It is not however possible to attribute the Department’s costs to specific scenario planning such as “no deal”. This is because the Department does not record expenditure or forecasts against potential outcomes; it records expenditure and forecasts on a functional basis.</p><p>The Main Estimate for 2018-19, which details the budgetary limits for the Department, can be found on <a href="https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/main-supply-estimates-2018-to-2019" target="_blank">GOV.UK</a>. The Department has been allocated a delegated expenditure limit of £93.0m for 2018-19, which covers both ‘deal’ and ‘no-deal’ scenarios. This is just one element of cross-Whitehall spend.</p><p> </p>
