At Autumn Budget 2017, HM Treasury made an additional £3 billion of funding available over the next two years – £1.5 billion in each year – so that Departments and the devolved administrations can continue to prepare effectively for European Union exit.
In the Spring Statement on 13 March 2018, my Rt. hon. Friend the Chief Secretary to the Treasury (Elizabeth Truss MP) laid a Written Ministerial Statement, HCWS540, setting out the full Departmental allocations of the £1.5 billion for 2018/19.
HM Treasury approved £21.1 million of funding for the Department of Health and Social Care preparations for EU exit in 2018/19, including planning for the United Kingdom leaving the EU without a deal. Spend against this allocation for 2018/19 will be included in the 2018/19 financial accounts.
The Department is preparing for all eventualities and the resources available to support preparations are kept under constant review.
