At Autumn Budget 2017 HM Treasury made £3 billion of additional funding available across government over 2018/19 and 2019/20 – £1.5 billion in each year. The Department for Education are currently working with HM Treasury to assess if the department requires additional funding for 2018/19 and aim to agree this soon.
HM Treasury has already allocated departments nearly £700 million to prepare for Brexit – £412 million for the Department for International Trade, the Foreign and Commonwealth Office and the Department for Exiting the European Union over the parliamentary session at Autumn Statement 2016 and nearly £300 million across a number of other departments from the reserve in 2017/18.
Departmental allocations for 2019/20 will be agreed later on in the new financial year and decisions on funding in 2020/21 and beyond will be decided at the next spending review. This is because requirements in these years will be heavily affected by what is agreed in our negotiations with the EU.
