The Government’s top priority is to deliver the deal negotiated with the EU. However, as a responsible government we are carrying out extensive preparations for all scenarios, including no deal. We are now accelerating and intensifying these preparations in the lead up to exit day, including providing public information to prepare people and businesses for a no deal scenario.

The Office of the Secretary of State for Wales is supporting other government departments in this work but is not spending money itself on any public information campaign.
