The Department for Transport and its Arms Length Bodies are engaged in a continuous process of anticipating and responding to the resourcing requirements of EU Exit. The Department is working with the Civil Aviation Authority (a public corporation), Office of Rail and Road (a non-Ministerial Department) and Maritime and Coastguard Agency (an Executive Agency) to ensure they have sufficient staff and resources to support the government and their respective industries post-EU exit.

As was confirmed in the Spring statement, the Department for Transport has been allocated £75.8m for essential EU exit preparations in 2018-19. While this has not been allocated yet, a proportion of this will be used to support resourcing requirements across the Department, and its associated agencies and public bodies.
