EU reveals no-deal plans for Brexit

NSD Logo
The European Commission says it has started to implement its preparations for a no-deal Brexit in case the UK crashes out of the EU without a plan. 

It has announced temporary measures to try to reduce the impact, but says it cannot counter all the problems it expects.

As British Prime Minister Theresa May's proposed exit plan flounders in Parliament, both sides are preparing for the worst-case situation. 

In a statement, the European Union said, the measures are designed to limit disruption in certain key areas, such as finance and transport, if Brexit goes ahead in March without a deal. 

Talking to reporters in Brussels, European Commission Vice-President Valdis Dombrovskis said, the plan is an exercise in limiting damage. He said, a contingency plan was necessary given the continued uncertainty in the UK.

The 14 EU actions include measures to allow UK-EU financial services to continue and a 12-month provision to keep planes flying between Britain and the bloc.

Britain is due to leave the EU on 29th of March, next year, but it remains unclear whether UK lawmakers will approve the divorce agreement Prime Minister Theresa May's government has negotiated with the bloc. 

Leaving without a deal risks plunging the British economy into recession and touching off chaos at the borders.
