No I have not, but I believe it difficult for assurances of this nature to be given before formal negotiations with the EU have begun.

However, the Chancellor has confirmed that the government will guarantee EU funding for structural and investment fund projects, including agri-environment schemes, signed after the Autumn Statement and which continue after we have left the EU.
