Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy written question – answered on 24th October 2018.
To ask the Secretary of State for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy, what plans his Department has to ensure that there is a secure supply of gas for residents of (a) England and (b) Sheffield Hallam in the event that the UK leaves the EU without a deal.
Maintaining security of supply is a top priority. The Government has been implementing a significant programme of work to ensure the UK will be ready for EU Exit in all scenarios, including in the unlikely event that the UK leaves the EU without a deal. Even with an unlikely ‘no deal’ outcome, the mechanisms of cross-border gas trading are not expected to fundamentally change for the UK and so we expect no material impact on security of supply. Government has set out in a technical notice how cross-border gas trading may be impacted in the unlikely event of a no deal Brexit.
