As a result of UK Government decisions at this Budget, the Northern Ireland Executive’s Barnett-based resource budget will increase by over £70 million and its capital budget by over £130 million in 2020-21.

This is on top of the £430 million of additional funding for 2020-21 provided at Spending Round 2019. All these additional Barnett consequentials are separate to the funding agreed by the Government in the financial annex to the Confidence and Supply Agreement.
