Jonathan submits parliamentary question about Brexit to the Treasury

Treasury has provided the following answer to Jonathan's parliamentary question (185033):

Question:
To ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer, what recent steps he has taken to ensure the preparedness of HMRC for the UK leaving the EU. (185033)

Tabled on: 29 October 2018

Answer:
Mel Stride:

The Government remains confident we will agree a mutually advantageous deal with the EU.

It is however the duty of a responsible Government to continue to prepare for a range of potential outcomes including the unlikely event of no deal.

The Chancellor of the Exchequer therefore continues to work closely with HMRC officials and has made funding available to ensure the department is ready for EU exit, whatever the outcome of negotiations.
