The Government continues to take a responsible approach in preparing plans for all exit scenarios. Over the past year, every government department has been working at pace to build a detailed understanding of how withdrawing from the EU will affect its existing policies and services across a wide range of outcomes. Planning for all scenarios is in no way representative of how talks are proceeding or indicative of our preferred outcome.
