To ask the Secretary of State for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy, which parts of the Government’s plan for Connecting Facility Energy funding in the event that the UK leaving the EU without a deal (a) have and (b) have not been implemented.
This answer is the replacement for a previous holding answer.
23 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.
