The Government took a position on EU membership during the referendum and the civil service worked in support of that at the time. However, now that a decision has been taken to leave the EU, Defra is working with other government departments on preparations for exiting the EU. In the meantime, all existing arrangements remain in place until negotiations are concluded and we leave the EU.
