Negotiating and implementing the UK’s withdrawal from the EU is the Government’s most important job over the coming years. But Brexit rarely features in its Single Departmental Plans, says Lewis Lloyd.
The UK needs to be ready for every possible Brexit outcome, but the challenges are big and time is short. 2018 will be the year where the purse strings are loosened and hopes are pinned on transition, argues Joe Owen.
