Ministers from across Government have carried out an extensive ongoing programme of engagement on EU exit - with businesses and industry bodies from all sectors of the economy and in all parts of the UK. In January 2017, Lord Bridges visited Portsmouth and attended a roundtable with local businesses to seek their perspective. Ministers have also met with representatives from a range of UK ports and will continue to engage ports throughout this process.
