Parliament may be out for summer in the UK, but that doesn’t mean that Brexit developments have been put on hold. While talk of when article 50 will be triggered has dominated conversation of late, behind the scenes a senior management team has been established responsible for negotiating Brexit and the establishment of a future UK trading relationship with the EU.
An interesting development, the new structure of the Department for Exiting the EU (DEEU) provides some insight into how the UK is viewing the Brexit process.
It has listed some immediate priorities that the team will need to put at the top of its to-do list. From ensuring that the government takes initial decisions on withdrawl on the basis of the best possible advice to reaching out to stakeholders to understand their views, there will certainly be some interesting times ahead once Parliament resumes on September 5th.
Take a look at which policy areas have come out on top below.
