UK's Cameron tells ministers it's business as usual, readies for Brexit

[LONDON] Prime Minister David Cameron urged his top ministers to get on with business on Monday and has set up a new unit to help lay the groundwork for a Brexit, or Britain's exit from the EU, his spokeswoman said.

"The government now needs to focus on doing all it can to prepare for a negotiation for us to leave the European Union ... and also to get on with a whole range of business that government has," she told reporters.

On the creation of a unit of public servants to support a new prime minister when Mr Cameron steps down by October, she said: "It is the pre-thinking, it is not the decision making, because it is right that that decision is taken by the prime minister in a new government."
