We do not want or expect a no deal outcome. However, a responsible government should prepare for all potential outcomes, including the unlikely scenario in which no mutually satisfactory agreement can be reached.
The Government is undertaking a wide range of analysis and preparatory work, across a range of scenarios, that will contribute to our exit negotiations with the EU, to define our future partnership with the EU, and to inform our understanding of how EU exit will affect the UK’s domestic policies and frameworks.
DExEU is working with all departments, including HM Treasury, to make sure that our preparations for exit and our new partnership with the EU are on track.
We have been clear the Government will not provide an ongoing commentary on internal analytical work.
