Since my appointment in October as Minister for Education and Skills, I have weekly meetings with the Secretary General, at which Brexit has been discussed.  It also featured on a regular basis at fortnightly Ministerial-Management Board meetings.

In addition, I have had four specific meetings with those officials dealing with my Department's Brexit preparations on a daily basis.
