Stakeholder engagement is a central element of our plan to build a national consensus around our negotiating position. Ministers from across Government have carried out extensive engagement on EU exit - with local authorities, businesses and industry bodies from all sectors of the economy and all regions of the UK, and with civil society groups including consumer bodies, trade unions, charities and academia. This dialogue will continue as the UK prepares to leave the EU.
