Holding answer received on 22 July 2019

In the event of the UK leaving the EU without a deal, the Government has guaranteed Connecting Europe Facility funding due to UK organisations, in line with the Technical Notice. BEIS and other delivery organisations have well-developed contingency plans to implement this guarantee, if required. I refer the hon Member to the technical notices published by the Government on the guarantee, and the funds covered by it, for further details.
