star this property answer text <p>The Department for Exiting the European Union was set up as a time limited department and as such the majority of staff are employed on 2-year fixed term contracts or are loaned from other Government Departments on a similar basis. The increase in numbers of leavers towards the end of 2018 and beginning of 2019 is mainly due to planned leavers moving to other government departments following the end of their pre-set loan agreement or job rotation, or have left the civil service following the end of their 2-year fixed-term appointment. The department undertakes succession planning to ensure it maintains its high standards of delivery.</p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><table><tbody><tr><td colspan="2"> </td><td colspan="2"><p>2016</p></td><td colspan="4"><p>2017</p></td><td colspan="4"><p>2018</p></td><td colspan="2"><p>2019</p></td></tr><tr><td colspan="2"> </td><td><p>Q3</p></td><td><p>Q4</p></td><td><p>Q1</p></td><td><p>Q2</p></td><td><p>Q3</p></td><td><p>Q4</p></td><td><p>Q1</p></td><td><p>Q2</p></td><td><p>Q3</p></td><td><p>Q4</p></td><td><p>Q1</p></td><td><p>Q2</p></td></tr><tr><td colspan="2"><p>Grade 6</p></td><td><p>0</p></td><td><p>0</p></td><td> </td><td> </td><td> </td><td><p>8</p></td><td><p>6</p></td><td> </td><td><p>13</p></td><td><p>6</p></td><td><p>7</p></td><td> </td></tr><tr><td colspan="2"><p>Grade 7</p></td><td> </td><td><p>9</p></td><td><p>10</p></td><td><p>6</p></td><td><p>10</p></td><td><p>17</p></td><td><p>11</p></td><td><p>12</p></td><td><p>16</p></td><td><p>24</p></td><td><p>22</p></td><td> </td></tr><tr><td colspan="2"><p>SCS1 and above</p></td><td> </td><td> </td><td><p>5</p></td><td><p>0</p></td><td><p>0</p></td><td><p>9</p></td><td> </td><td> </td><td><p>9</p></td><td><p>0</p></td><td><p>6</p></td><td> </td></tr></tbody></table><p> </p>

star this property answer text <p>No such assurances have been sought from the EU, for a scenario where the UK leaves the EU without a deal, as the Government remains committed to seeking an agreement. The Government and the European Commission have been clear that our ​trading relationship must comply with WTO rules. GATT Article XXIV is the provision which allows WTO members to form free trade areas or customs unions, or to adopt an interim agreement necessary for the formation of a customs union or of a free trade area. It relates solely to trade in goods. Any preferential arrangement between the UK and EU under Article XXIV - whether temporary or permanent - requires the mutual agreement of both parties.</p><p> </p> more like this

We have therefore ensured we are ready to cooperate with European partners in areas such as security, air transport and medicines, and that the whole UK family, including Gibraltar and the Sovereign Base Areas, will be prepared in the event of a 'no deal'. All the primary legislation necessary for no deal is in place, and work continues to ensure that we are ready for that scenario, while remaining focused on our priority, which is to leave with a deal.</p><p> </p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>Supporting the long-term competitiveness of UK industry and business is a priority for ministers across Government. Through the Automotive Sector Deal, the Faraday Battery Challenge and the Centre for Connected and Autonomous Vehicles for example, we are ensuring the UK remains internationally competitive post Exit, and continues to be a world leader in the development of emerging automotive technologies.</p><p>We remain focused on ensuring our smooth and orderly withdrawal from the EU with a deal. However, as a responsible Government we are engaging extensively with all sectors of the economy to understand their needs and help mitigate the impacts of a no deal exit. In the last year, DExEU ministers attended approximately 200 engagements with business and civil society stakeholders. We have published approximately 750 pieces of no deal communications since August 2018, including 106 technical notices. When necessary we will continue to update our advice on how people should prepare.</p><p> </p>

To prepare for this scenario, the Government has developed the UK’s own import notification capability.</p><p>This capability was in place for exit on 12 April and will be in place for exit on 31 October. This will ensure resources are targeted appropriately, so that sanitary and phytosanitary checks can continue to protect the UK from risks to public health while delays at the border are minimised.</p><p> </p> more like this

The Government is already implementing its offer to guarantee the rights of EU citizens in the UK and the EU Settlement Scheme opened fully on 30 March and to date, over 800,000 citizens have made an application.</p><p>The EU Settlement Scheme, has been implemented by the changes to Appendix EU to the Immigration Rules, which are made under section 3(2) of the Immigration Act 1971. These legislative measures are consistent with the Government’s commitment that in any scenario, EU citizens resident in the UK by exit day will be able to stay and continue living their lives broadly as they do now.</p><p>On 27 February, the House supported an amendment tabled by Alberto Costa MP to seek a joint UK-EU commitment to adopt Part II of the Withdrawal Agreement whatever the outcome of negotiations. The Government has since written to Michel Barnier twice on this matter. On 21 June Michel Barnier responded to the Secretary of State’s most recent letter of 17 June and we are carefully considering our response.</p>
