A new Department for Exiting the European Union has been established by the Prime Minister, which is responsible for overseeing negotiations for the withdrawal of the UK from the EU. It will also lead work to establish the future relationship between the UK and EU. The Foreign and Commonwealth Office will work closely with this new Department, as it will with the new Department for International Trade.
