As a responsible Government, we have been working with our DAERA colleagues to minimise any disruption to farmers in the event of a no deal.

We have made it clear that we will support vulnerable sectors through Government intervention in a no deal, should this be necessary. We will be monitoring the sectors which may be exposed to short-term difficulties as a result of Exit closely to identify early signs of market disturbance, allowing us to intervene swiftly if necessary.
