My Department has been engaged in active and ongoing contingency planning in respect of all of its relevant functions for some time in the context of preparing for the United Kingdom withdrawal from the EU.

Work on the development of a new All of Government Climate Plan is continuing, and it is my intention to finalise this work with a view to bringing the plan to Government before the end of March.
