The Ministry of Defence has a small team who have been appointed to deal with Defence issues relating to the UK's decision to leave the EU. This team draws on a wide range of colleagues from across the Ministry of Defence (MOD) who support EU exit related work, in addition to their normal duties.

Given the interactions between EU exit work and the MOD's other priorities, it would not be possible to give an accurate future estimate.
