The Government is making additional funding available so that departments and the devolved administrations can prepare effectively for EU Exit. More than £4.2 billion has been provided since 2016, including over £2 billion for core Brexit activity in 2019-20 for deal and no deal scenarios.
The 2019-20 allocations were announced in a Written Ministerial Statement on 18 December 2018. The devolved administrations received their full share of additional funding in devolved areas through the Barnett Formula, with the Scottish Government allocated £54.7m, the Welsh Government allocated £31.1m, and the Northern Ireland administration allocated £20.4m. The Police Service Northern Ireland has received a further £16.5m to reflect the specific and unique circumstances in Northern Ireland.
This follows 2018-19 Barnett-based allocations from a £1.5 billion fund, which provided the Scottish Government with £37.3m, the Welsh Government with £21.4m, and the Northern Ireland administration with £15.2m.
