The funding choices we take after exiting the EU will be based on the UK’s priorities. Decisions will also be affected by the economic environment, the fiscal position and the negotiated outcome. As we start to take our own decisions in these areas, we will of course make sure all parts of the UK, including the Overseas Territories, are treated fairly.
