I refer My hon. Friend, the Member for Preseli Pembrokeshire to the answer I gave on 8 May 2019 to Question 252019.

The government is considering the value for money of the UK's participation in the Erasmus+ programme. Ultimately, any decisions about our participation in the Erasmus+ programme will also be a matter for wider negotiations about our future relationship with the EU.
