To ask the Secretary of State for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs, pursuant to the Answer of 8 March 2019 to Question 240639 on Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs: Arm's Length Bodies, what estimate he has made of the cost to the public purse of seconding those 80 staff from arm's-length bodies to work on preparations for the UK's withdrawal from the EU.

There is no additional cost to the public purse because Defra has sought to reprioritise staff from across the group to focus on key requirements related to the UK’s departure from the EU, whilst minimising the need for additional recruitment.
