The UK Government remains focussed on ensuring a smooth and orderly withdrawal from the EU with a deal as soon as possible.

However, as a responsible government, we continue to prepare for all scenarios. The Home Office has been planning and preparing for a no deal scenario for some time, and we have contingency plans in place across areas including law enforcement, passports and the border.

During the extension period, to underpin our ability to respond in a no deal scenario, we are working closely with operational partners to develop our response to a range of theoretical scenarios.
