To ask the Secretary of State for Work and Pensions, what plans his Department has to replace funding from the European Social Fund for employment programmes after the UK leaves the EU.
Answer (Damian Hinds)
Leaving the EU means we will take our own decisions about how to deliver the policy objectives previously targeted by EU funding, including supporting young people from disadvantaged groups and communities. For European Social Fund projects signed before we leave the EU which continue after we have left the EU, funding will be honoured provided they are value for money and in line with domestic strategic priorities.
