The UK government is committed to negotiating a deal for the UK when it leaves the EU in March 2019. However, as a responsible government, work will continue to prepare proportionately for all scenarios, including the outcome that we leave the EU without any deal in March 2019. As part of this work, DWP regularly works with other government departments on planning assumptions, and these assumptions are regularly reviewed and changed as more information arises.
