It is in the interests of both the EU and the UK to strike a deal and this remains the goal on both sides. We are confident that this will be achieved.

It is the job of a responsible government to prepare for all scenarios. We have already carried out very significant ‘no deal’ preparations for the unlikely event that we reach March 2019 without agreeing a deal.

We have already published over 100 technical notices so that businesses and citizens have time to prepare in the event of a 'no deal' scenario. These are available on GOV.UK in a centralised location that is easy for people to access and use.
