CIPFA is launching an independent advisory commission on Brexit to highlight the risks and opportunities facing the public sector.

The announcement comes as the prime minister triggers Article 50 of the Lisbon Treaty beginning the formal process of EU exit.

Chaired by former Liberal Democrat MP Julia Goldsworthy, the Brexit Advisory Commission for Public Services will explore the impact of negotiations on public services and aim to ensure the government fully considers public sector needs as it works towards a final deal.

Areas of focus will include state aid rules, structural and investment funding and the future of EU nationals employed in the public sector.

Webchat is available Monday to Friday, 09:00 - 17:00 (excluding UK bank holidays).
