To ask the Secretary of State for Wales, when the Government plans to publish its contingency plans for the transport network servicing trade and travel through Welsh ports to Ireland in the event that no deal is reached for the UK's withdrawal from the EU.

We do not want or expect a no deal scenario. It is however the duty of a responsible Government to continue to prepare for a range of potential outcomes including the unlikely event of no deal.

We have now published 106 specific technical notices, including on transport, trading with the EU, and the Common Travel Area, to help businesses, citizens and consumers to prepare for March 2019 in the event of a no deal scenario. These are available here:
