The UK’s government and Parliament face massive pressure as they seek to negotiate the country’s departure from the EU. 40 years of EU legislation will have to be replaced or absorbed into UK law. The government has to navigate its way through Parliament with a tiny majority and with dissident groups of MPs attempting to achieve particular versions of Brexit. The civil service has been reorganised and is having to expand to meet the demands of ‘taking back control’. This event will examine the ways in which Brexit has revealed – and will continue to reveal – how the UK’s government, Parliament, political parties and the civil service operate under such pressure.
