To ask the Secretary of State for Exiting the European Union, what assessment he has made of the reasons for the level of staff turnover in his Department.
DExEU was set up as a time-limited department with a clear mandate to carry out a historic task: implement the democratic decision of the British people to leave the EU.
Many of those who have left to date have moved on to other government departments because their loan or rotation ended. Only a small minority have actually left the Civil Service.
The Department for Exiting the European Union now has over 650 staff. The Department continues to recruit the brightest and the best from across the civil service, the wider public sector and the private sector, in a range of professions.
