For reasons of national security, the MPS do not publically provide the breakdown of police counter-terrorism spend by individual projects, capabilities, or work streams.  Disclosure could identify areas where the threat to the national security of the UK is greatest or where there are vulnerabilities in different regions or capabilities.  The level of CT grant funding provided to police forces is based on advice from the police on an assessment of what is needed to counter the threat.
