To ask the Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster and Minister for the Cabinet Office, what assessment his Department has made of the effects of the UK leaving the EU without a deal that cannot be mitigated; and what assessment he has made of the potential effect on the UK of those unmitigated effects.
The Government is continuing to prepare for our exit from the European Union and we are making all necessary preparations to ensure we are ready whatever the circumstances, including a no deal scenario. The Government has published extensive material relating to Brexit on Gov.UK/Brexit.
The Hon. Member may wish to refer to the Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster’s statement to the House on Brexit readiness and Operation Yellowhammer, made on 25 September 2019 for more information relating to this question on the effects and mitigations to a no deal exit.
The Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster also wrote to the Chair of the Commons EU Exit Committee on 25 September 2019 confirming a document outlining the no deal mitigations the Government has put in place and intends to put in place will be published in due course.
