The Treasury sets the Northern Ireland administration’s overall Financial Transaction Capital budget through the normal operation of the Barnett formula.

The allocation and use of Financial Transactions Capital is a devolved function and a matter for the Northern Ireland administration.

Further to this funding, the UK government is committed to supporting the Northern Ireland economy. This is demonstrated, for example, by the £400m the government is investing in City Deals for Belfast and Derry/Londonderry and Strabane City Region.
