The Ministry of Defence has been working across Government, including with the Home Office and the National Police Chiefs' Council, to ensure that Government is adequately prepared for the range of YELLOWHAMMER Planning Assumptions. The maintenance of public order is the responsibility of the police. There are no plans to utilise military personnel in the event of civil unrest in the event of a no-deal Brexit.
