'Martial Law' is not a defined term in the UK and is not a phrase recognised in UK Policing doctrine. The Police are responsible for Public Order in the UK and the Ministry of Defence has no plans to utilise military personnel for public order in the event of a no-deal Brexit. Defence remains closely engaged with other Government departments on wider no-deal contingency planning and remains available to support the civil authorities if necessary.
