Rt Hon Lord Lilley

    Lord Lilley:

    To ask Her Majesty’s Government whether their contingency preparations for the UK leaving the EU without a withdrawal agreement are complete.

    Lord Callanan:

    The Government is continuing to prepare for all scenarios and we have taken appropriate steps to help mitigate the effects of no deal. We have passed critical legislation, signed international agreements, and guaranteed certain EU funding.

    We are continuing to communicate with businesses and the public and this will increase as we approach EU Exit until we are confident that contingency planning is no longer needed.
