No Deal and Local Government briefing - August 2018

Over the summer of 2018, the Government intends to publish a number of technical papers setting out the impact of a ‘no deal’ Brexit scenario and how the country should prepare for such a scenario.

The Government and the European Union have both stressed that ‘no deal’ is a least-preferred option. This paper has been developed and delivered in that spirit. It offers the headline issues for local government under a ‘no deal’ scenario and advises Government on the key issues that would need to be addressed through national action.
