The Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy (BEIS) was created in July 2016, so its first full year budget was for the financial year 2017/18.

BEIS budgets decreased in real terms by 3.8% between 2017/18 and 2018/19.

BEIS budgets are projected to increase in real terms by 4.9% between 2018/19 and 2019/20. (2019/20 budgets are yet to be approved by Parliament so may be subject to change.)

My right hon. Friend the Chancellor of the Exchequer has confirmed that there will be a Spending Review in 2019 which will set planned departmental budgets beyond 2019/20.

Note: “BEIS budgets” refers to total Departmental Expenditure Limits, excluding depreciation, taken from the Autumn Budget 2017 publication.
