I meet with my officials on Brexit related issues on an ongoing basis.  Brexit matters are also discussed by the Management Board on a regular basis. 

My Department has a dedicated Brexit unit within the EU/North South Unit. The Unit supports me in my work on Brexit, leads work across the Department and its agencies, and represents the Department on the various groups that coordinate's the Government's response to Brexit.  Brexit issues are also addressed by staff in relevant areas across the Department.
