HM Treasury has already allocated over £4.2 billion of additional funding to departments and the devolved administrations for Brexit preparations so far. This includes the £1.5 billion of additional funding HM Treasury announced at Autumn Budget 2017 for 2018/19. A full breakdown of how this was allocated to departments can be found in the Chief Secretary’s Written Ministerial Statement, HCWS540, laid on 13 March (https://www.parliament.uk/business/publications/written-questions-answers-statements/written-statement/Commons/2018-03-13/HCWS540/).

MHCLG did not receive Brexit preparations allocation for the financial year 2018/19.
