Article in the BBC today explaining that the government have not spent £3.5m of EU funding to alleviate child poverty which was allocated 6 years ago. Every other EU country have used their funding, mostly on food aid.
Our government claimed there were too many barriers.
In a no deal Brexit this funding will likely be handed back.

Came on to say the same as Barbarians. If it was funding for something the government was interested in, it would have been spent.
