The department regularly reprioritises work in line with its changing priorities as part of its dynamic and flexible resourcing model. Many staff will work both on EU Exit and other priorities. Because of this it is not possible to give an accurate estimate of the number of civil servants involved solely in contingency planning for ‘No Deal’, at any one time.
