The Permanent Secretary at the Department for Exiting the EU, Phillip Rycroft, is resigning, meaning the Brexit department is already onto its third Secretary of State and soon its third Permanent Secretary since it was created less than three years ago.
Commenting, Jo Stevens MP, a leading supporter of the People’s Vote campaign, said:
“The chaotic Brexit department is already on its third Secretary of State, and now we learn they’ll soon be onto their third Permanent Secretary as well. The department is a reflection of the whole Brexit process – shambolic and doomed to fail.
“Now that we know so much more about the chaos and disruption caused by Brexit, as well as the extortionate cost to the taxpayer and the price the economy is already paying, it’s time to give the public the final say. That’s why huge numbers will be marching through London on March 23 demanding that Brexit is put to the people.”
