The Department continues to liaise closely with the Port of Dover with regard to contingency and resilience measures that could be applied in the event of a no deal exit from the European Union. This includes plans to ensure that England’s roads are ready for EU exit, including operations to manage both passenger and freight traffic using the port in the event of disruption. The Port itself continues to engage closely with Government on no deal preparations. With regard to managing any impact on seafarers serving Dover routes, the responsibility sits with the relevant shipping companies or employers in the first instance.
