Wales Office: Brexit

Question for Wales Office

UIN 205370, tabled on 4 January 2019

To ask the Secretary of State for Wales, how much his Department is spending on a public information campaign to prepare people for the potential effects of the UK leaving the EU without a deal.

Answered on

9 January 2019

The Government’s top priority is to deliver the deal negotiated with the EU. However, as a responsible government we are carrying out extensive preparations for all scenarios, including no deal. We are now accelerating and intensifying these preparations in the lead up to exit day, including providing public information to prepare people and businesses for a no deal scenario.

The Office of the Secretary of State for Wales is supporting other government departments in this work but is not spending money itself on any public information campaign.
