‘Damaging and unmanageable muddle’ Whitehall’s Brexit strategy SAVAGED in shock report

In total 313 separate “workstreams”, which will need to be completed and focused on, ensuring plans to deal with them are “up to scratch”, have been identified by Department for Exiting the EU (DExDU), the report said.

But in December, Philip Rycroft, DExDU’s top civil servant told PAC that there was “a long road to go” to turn some of the plans into reality. 

The report found DExDU has been “too slow,” and said: “[Plans] may not be sufficiently developed to enable implementation to start quickly.”

All departments have been urged to review their wider commitments by March, to determine which must be ditched or delayed, ahead of preparation for Brexit.
