The Government continues undertaking planning for all EU exit scenarios, as is prudent for such a significant issue. At Autumn Budget 2017, the Chancellor set aside £1.5 billion of additional funding for EU Exit preparations in 2019/20. Departments will be invited to bid for 2019/20 EU Exit preparation funding later in the year. Details of timings and process will be announced in due course.

The Department for Work and Pensions continues to work closely with the Department for Exiting the European Union to ensure consistency of plans across government.
