The expenditure by each Boundary Commission on the conduct of the Boundary Review which reported in September 2018 includes costs incurred in the 2018-19 financial year, and the figures are therefore subject to final confirmation of the 2018-19 accounts. The National Audit Office is currently auditing Departmental accounts for 2018-19 and once it has produced its report on them, it will be possible to confirm the final costs incurred by the four Boundary Commissions in the boundary review.
