Lame advice to councils on Brexit

A new Minister proposing a Brexit lead for councils might seem sensible, but it’s minuscule (quite correct, Jess Phillips) and ignores what has already happened. There are networks of emergency planning officers across the public authorities that have been looking at this. Nottingham City Council took a report (at full council) on planning for Brexit last year (November) at which a corporate risk assessment was required to be presented to the January Audit cttee. Like all of the new stuff from Gov’t. too little, very late and ignores what is already in place.
