As part of Spending Review settlements, some spending is subject to specific policy ring-fences. If so, departments may not move money across the ring-fence, except as specified in the Spending Review settlement. The budgets for the National Citizen Service are subject to such a policy ring-fence. Her Majesty’s Treasury keeps all such ring-fences under review.
