EU Exit is an all-of-government operation. The Department for Work and Pensions (DWP) is working closely with the Department for Exiting the European Union to support the UK’s exit from the EU. Staff within the EU and International Affairs Division in DWP lead on providing advice to Ministers on EU Exit and exit-related issues, but other 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 provide an accurate figure for the information requested.
