Creating the law would be a parliamentary/governmental action, but not the deducting/compensating itself. While this may look like cutting hairs, it's about political usage of words so the difference may well be significant (IMO it is, keeping in mind I'm not English native).
"The business secretary, Greg Clark, has insisted there was “no cheque book” involved in the assurance given to Nissan before the car giant agreed to keep investing in Britain.

Clark reportedly gave a “last-minute written promise” to Nissan to protect the company from the consequences of Brexit"

"David Mundell, the Scottish secretary, confused matters further on Thursday by declaring: “If we are leaving the EU, we are leaving the single market.”"

Maybe they are secretly telling the companies that they will not really invoke Brexit
