Written Answers — Department for Exiting the European Union: EU Countries

Mike Wood: To ask the Secretary of State for Exiting the European Union, what steps the Government has taken to cooperate with other EU states on those countries' preparations for the UK leaving the EU without a deal.


Chris Heaton-Harris (The Parliamentary Under-Secretary of State for Exiting the European Union)

We are committed to negotiating a successful exit. As a responsible Government we are also preparing for the unlikely scenario in which we leave without a deal. This includes cooperating with Member States to minimise disruption to citizens and businesses. We will continue to impress upon Member States our joint responsibility to work together.

The European Commission have also made clear Member States should take the steps necessary to prepare for this scenario.
