The Government has been clear that the best way to ensure certainty for all in the UK, including investors, is to leave the EU with a deal. The Government’s analysis illustrated that the spectrum of outcomes for the future UK-EU relationship in the Political Declaration would deliver significantly higher economic output than the no deal scenario.

This is why the Prime Minister is now seeking legally binding changes to the Withdrawal Agreement that deal with MP’s concerns. While the Government is taking responsible steps to prepare for all scenarios, including ‘no deal’, we are confident we can secure a majority in Parliament for leaving the EU with a deal.
