Responding to news that the Department for Exiting the European Union’s most senior civil servant Philip Rycroft is expected to retire at the end of the month, Liberal Democrat Brexit Spokesperson Tom Brake said:
“So the only managed departure the Department for Exiting the European Union has been able to strike is for their own Permanent Secretary.
“I wish Philip Rycroft well in his retirement, albeit I am sure the public, like me, would prefer to see the whole Brexit shambles retired instead.
“With a change in personnel at this key stage in the Brexit process, questions will be raised. The best assurance Ministers could give is to back the Liberal Democrat campaign to give the people the final say, including the option to stay in the EU.”
