"CIPFA Response: UK departure from the EU"
In response to the UK’s departure from the EU this evening, Rob Whiteman, CIPFA CEO said:
“As we officially cross into the Brexit transition period, concerns about the financial impact of the UK’s departure from the EU on domestic public services still loom. Given that the Withdrawal Agreement Bill passed without an Economic Impact Assessment, the public sector at large is restricted in its ability to prepare for the social, political and economic changes that will likely arise at the end of 2020.
