Following the extension to Article 50, Government Ministers and their Officials have reviewed and developed new border planning assumptions based on the most recent information available. These assumptions are focused on a reasonable worst case scenario, rather than what we expect to happen, and have already been shared with key partners to support contingency planning, where appropriate, should the UK leave the European Union on 31 October without a deal.
