Six firms take bulk of Government Brexit spending - The Guardian

Cabinet Office

A leaked draft report by the National Audit Office (NAO) shows UK government departments have paid at least £97m to management consultants for Brexit preparation advice up to April this year, according to The Guardian.

The NAO, which scrutinises government expenditure, says spending on Brexit consultancy work could hit £240m by 2020.

Much of this consulting work falls under the Cabinet Office label of "readiness for exit scenarios".

Six firms — Deloitte, PA Consulting, PricewaterhouseCoopers (PWC), Ernst & Young, Bain & Company and Boston Consulting Group — have taken some 96% of fees spent via The Cabinet Office.
