The Law Officers' Departments use their resource flexibly and a number of staff from across the organisations have been involved in work that supports the UK’s exit from the EU.

The Government Legal Department has a team that specifically provides legal services to the Department for Exiting the European Union (DExEU). Currently, there are 41.5 full-time-equivalent staff in this team and GLD would expect to charge DExEU £3.731m for the services of this team in the 2017/18 financial year.

The remaining Law Officers' Departments (Attorney General’s Office, Crown Prosecution Service, Serious Fraud Office and Her Majesty’s Crown Prosecution Service Inspectorate) do not keep a separate record of expenditure for work relating to the UK’s exit from the EU. It would not be proportionate to quantify the number of staff involved and calculate costings, – particularly as the numbers of staff involved and the time requirements from each vary over time.
