Earlier this year, the new Secretary of State set out his priorities for 2018 [as set out in the recently published Single Departmental Plan]. The allocations process ensured that the activities and funding of the Department aligned to these priorities. Although this work had not been finalised at the time that the Main Supply Estimate was published, all areas were aware of budget proposals to allow them to plan sufficiently, and appropriate governance arrangements were in place for the start of the financial year.
