UK government says Brexit department to close after January 31

LONDON (Reuters) - Britain’s Brexit department will be closed down once the country leaves the European Union at the end of January, a government spokesman said on Thursday.

The Department for Exiting the European Union was originally set up in July 2016 to oversee Britain’s negotiations to leave the EU and establish a future relationship with the bloc.
