Brexit work across Government: new details published

4 May 2018

The Public Accounts Committee has published new details of work being undertaken by Government to implement Brexit.

A department-by-department overview is set out in correspondence received from the Department for Exiting the European Union.

Deputy Chair's comments

Sir Geoffrey Clifton-Brown MP, PAC Deputy Chair, comments:

"We welcome the Government's confirmation that there are 325 workstreams, an increase from the initial 313 that were published in the National Audit Office's report of November 2017.

Whilst it is useful to have an idea of the substantive areas that each department is working on to prepare for Brexit, at some stage Parliament needs to be given the opportunity to see how well prepared the Government is in its infrastructure and resources to successfully carry out this process."
