EU Exit Agriculture Legislation Team

EU Exit Team

Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs |

The EU Exit Agriculture Legislation Team handled the challenge of delivering a working statute book for agriculture for day one of the UK’s exit from the EU. The team from the outset scoped out the work, from auditing decades’ worth of EU legislation to establishing what is needed to be done to the existing statute. This team delivered huge amounts of  complex policy analysis and development to make the necessary changes to the Withdrawal Act, making great progress over such a short period by a relatively small team. The collaborative approach, the pace, professionalism and pride every day in delivering against the ever-moving challenge really has demonstrated the very best the Civil Service has to offer.
