The UK Government has a responsibility to plan for, respond to and recover from a wide variety of challenges and events. As such Government departments work with partners in the public and private sectors to develop and test contingency plans for such challenges.

It is the Government’s policy to leave the EU with a deal. As a responsible Government we have been planning, and continue to prepare for all eventualities associated with the UK leaving the EU. This includes managing the impacts of a no deal Brexit if they arise.
