Civil service should put their concerns about no-deal Brexit on the record, says Lib Dem mayoral candidate

The civil service should “play their part” by placing their concerns about no-deal Brexit on the file, Liberal Democrat mayoral candidate Siobhan Benita stated at the moment.

Ms Benita, a former high civil servant, advised Cabinet Secretary Sir Mark Sedwill may formalise their place by issuing a “direction”.

The measure can be utilized by the most senior civil servant in a division who’s accountable for spending.

It places on the file {that a} division will perform a minister’s calls for — regardless of it going towards their personal recommendation.

Ms Benita stated: “We have gotten to the level the place the Cabinet Secretary should difficulty a route on no-deal Brexit.
