Julia Goldsworthy on Michael Gove’s 'Work with everyone' Brexit statement


Julia Goldsworthy, Chair of CIPFA’s Brexit Advisory Commission for Public Services, commented on Michael Gove’s statement on working with everyone during Brexit negotiations:

“It is welcome news that the new Environment Secretary, Michael Gove, has claimed that the government will ‘work with everyone’ to achieve an effective Brexit deal. However, it is critical that ‘everyone’ should include public services for the sake of the people who rely on them.

“The Brexit Advisory Commission for Public Services stands ready to support the government in understanding the risks and opportunities of Brexit for the sector during the negotiation process.”
