To ask the Secretary of State for Work and Pensions, pursuant to the Answer of 21 January 2019 to Question 207551 on Department for Work and Pensions: Brexit, for what reason her Department is unable to estimate the amount of funding her Department has allocated to prepare for the UK leaving the EU without a deal.

DWP has been allocated £15m for 2019/20 for EU Exit activity however this includes costs for both deal and no deal preparation.

Given the interaction between EU Exit activity and the Department’s other priorities, preparations for both deal and no deal have been undertaken by staff as part of their regular duties. We are therefore unable to disaggregate the costs specifically related to no deal EU Exit activity.
