The Government has made it clear that the UK intends to leave the EU with a deal and not take part in the European Parliamentary Elections (EPE) in May if possible, however, all the necessary preparations will be made for the election to take place on 23 May.

As is normal practice, the Cabinet Office is currently in process of finalising cost estimates and these will be published in the relevant Charges Order in due course.
