The UK’s exit from the EU is a cross-government operation. The Department for Exiting the European Union is doing detailed work with departments to prepare for the upcoming negotiations by understanding the risks and opportunities of leaving the EU and coordinating planning.
Staff within the Home Office Europe Directorate and the Border Immigration and Citizenship System Policy and Strategy Group lead on providing advice to Ministers on EU exit and exit related issues. Members of staff across the Department also provide advice and analysis on EU exit issues as required.
Given the interactions between EU exit work and the Department’s other priorities, it would not be possible to give an accurate figure on how many staff in the Home Office have responsibilities relating to exiting the EU.
