The Chancellor announced in October 2016 that all European Marine and Fisheries Fund projects approved before the UK leaves the EU will be fully funded under a Treasury guarantee, even when these projects have not been completed by the UK’s departure date. This guarantee applies across the UK. Work to consider the longer term future of all funding programmes that are currently managed by the EU is underway. Leaving the EU means we will want to take our own decisions about how to deliver the policy objectives previously supported by EU programmes.
