I have met with my officials on numerous occasions in the period outlined by the Deputy, and the issue of Brexit has been discussed frequently as it pertains to the ongoing work of my Department.

Additionally, as we draw closer to the Brexit date of 29 March, Brexit preparatory planning has become a standing agenda item at my monthly meetings with the Management Board of my Department.
