That is exactly what we are doing across the whole of Government.</p><p> </p><p>The Home Office leads on EU Exit planning across a number of justice and home affairs areas, including Immigration and Security and Law Enforcement cooperation. Home Office EU Exit contingency planning is well underway, and this will continue as an ongoing process until the EU Exit negotiations are complete.</p><p> </p><p>In relation to national security, Article 4(2) of the Treaty on European Union sets out that national security remains the sole responsibility of Member States rather than the European Union.</p> more like this
