To ask the Secretary of State for Health and Social Care, pursuant to the Answer of 18 June 2020 to Question 58102 on Eating Disorders: Children and Young People, if he will provide further explanatory information on the statistical formulae used to determine the geographic distribution of that funding in (a) 2018-19 and (b) 2019-20 to 2023-24.

The technical guide to CCG allocations explains how these formulae are developed and used. This can be found at the following link:
