As a result of announcements made at Autumn Statement 2014, the Northern Ireland Executive will receive £76 million in additional allocations through to 2015-16, following the application of the Barnett Formula to new spending allocated to UK Government departments.

£42.7 million of this overall amount results from new funding being provided to the Department of Health, and £3.3 million is a result of new funding for the Department for Transport.
