Three years ago, more people voted to leave the European Union than had ever voted for any party or proposition in our history. Politicians of all parties promised the public that they would honour the result.
This Government is clear that we won’t be deterred from getting on and delivering on the will of the people to leave the EU on 31 October. We are taking steps to be ready for every eventuality.
Our focus remains on getting a deal at the October European Council and leaving the EU on October 31. In doing so, the Government remains absolutely committed to the Belfast (Good Friday) Agreement, to ensuring there will be no infrastructure at the border and to upholding the functioning of the all-Ireland economy.
We are also turbocharging ‘No Deal’ preparations with the Treasury making all necessary funds available. We will ensure that there is as little disruption to national life as possible.
The Secretary of State for Health and Social Care has taken steps to ensure that we can have all the medicines that we require, both by ensuring that we have unimpeded flow in the short straits and by ensuring that we can procure additional freight capacity.
The British people gave us a clear instruction to leave the EU. This country can be entirely confident that this Government will be ready, deal or no deal.
