The UK Treasury will issue an Autumn Statement on 23rd November 2016. The UK Chancellor Philip Hammond has previously stated that any funding allocated to EU projects contracted up to that point would be guaranteed by the UK government. According to a new statement from 3rd October on the gov.uk website, “the Chancellor has now extended this guarantee to the point at which the UK departs the EU” for projects meeting certain conditions.
Exactly how this may affect the Fourth Call project decisions is not clear. In case of new developments, the programme will get back with further news.
