The UK Government is committed to engaging fully with the Crown Dependencies as we exit the EU to ensure they are prepared for all exit scenarios and their interests and priorities are properly taken into account. My officials have fortnightly engagements with representatives of the Crown Dependencies and the Minister of State responsible, Robin Walker MP, holds formal quarterly meetings with the Chief Ministers of Jersey, Guernsey and the Isle of Man.

Officials from the UK and Crown Dependency governments have worked together on readiness planning, the transition of International Agreements, and on the drafting of primary and secondary exit legislation, as well as broader discussions on the future EU-UK relationship.
