Public service leaders 'kept in dark' over Brexit

The majority of public service leaders have warned they have not received enough information from the Government in order to plan effectively for Brexit.

A new survey by Chartered Institute of Public Finance and Accountancy (CIPFA) found 75% of public service leaders feel the Government hasn’t engaged with their organisation enough over Brexit.

Almost half (44%) said they are receiving an insufficient amount of information.

'It’s now been two years since the Brexit vote and fourteen months since Article 50 was triggered, yet the vast majority of public services leaders still feel that the Government is keeping them in the dark,' said chief executive of CIPFA, Rob Whiteman.

'As the Government must want a Brexit dividend to be a more sustainable and effective public sector, it is crucial that light is shed on what the UK’s future relationship with the EU will look like and soon. Otherwise, public service leaders won’t have the time or information to respond.'
