Ministers draw up secret plans to stockpile processed food in case of a ‘no deal’ Brexit

The Government could unveil some of the 300 contingency measures, including a bid to keep Britain’s food and drinks industry afloat

MINISTERS have drawn up secret plans to stockpile processed food in the event of EU divorce talks collapsing - to show Brussels that “no deal” is not a bluff.

Theresa May has ordered “no deal” planning “to step up” — with the government poised to start unveiling some of the 300 contingency measures in the coming weeks.

At last week’s Chequers summit, Brexiteer ministers demanded more be done to prepare for Britain leaving the EU out without a new arrangement in place.

The Sun can reveal that includes emergency measures to keep Britain’s massive food and drinks industry afloat - including stockpiling ahead of exit day on 29 March next year.

More than £22 billion worth of processed food and drinks are imported in to the UK - 97 per cent from the EU - in an industry that keeps 400,000 workers employed in the UK.

Similar stockpiles are also being prepared for medical supplies amid fears of chaos at British ports next year.

Brexit department insiders also claim plans have also been “wargamed” to ease pressure on Calais, including importing and exporting more goods through Holland, Belgium and directly from Spain.

Last night Downing Street said “no deal preparation work is to be stepped up” and led by new Brexit Secretary Dominic Raab.

Yesterday the Cabinet newbie briefed fellow ministers on measures Britain is taking, with No10 saying: “It’s sensible to make preparations for all scenarios and that includes No Deal.”

With trade talks due to recommence in Brussels next week, a Whitehall source said: “preparations for no deal are actually much further down the line than people realise, and we will be making that clear in the coming weeks.”

Meanwhile, Justice Secretary David Gauke warned Tory Eurosceptics that a “no-deal” Brexit was “not an attractive option at all”.

    New Brexit Secretary Dominic Raab admitted 'no deal preparation work is to be stepped up'

While insisting that the option cannot be ruled out, Mr Gauke told the BBC: “What I would say to those of my colleagues, if there are some, who think this is pain-free and this is just something that we can ride over very easily, is no deal will have a negative impact on our constituents, on the British public.”

But last night it emerged his department would be spending more than £17 million preparing for the scenario.


This is old news, and here is the old response:



:lol:

And now the new brexit minister Rabies has issued numerous "notifications" about the no-deal-brexit; hope for the best, prepare for the worst. :shock:

But the worst is nothing like what will happen 2019-03-30 if no-deal will happen. So I expect to see notifications for private citizens to heard corned beef, spam, dried peas and beans, potatoes, beet root or what ever stays good a long time. Like preparing for war.

Just wonder are recommendations in Scotland to stockpile canned haggis. In one sense Swedish surströmming is good, it comes canned. :o

There are still some old Liberty/Victory ships scattered around the US, mostly of them are museum ships.


We have one in Tampa:

I suppose in a pinch we could scrape some of them together and send a food convoy over to Britain.

Trump could announce an emergency unilateral zero-tariff policy on all British imports for 6 months at the point of Brexit with the other half to be negotiated later.

Trade happens if a government doesnt prevent it. Its like people seriously think that the British government is going to put up some trade barriers? That it will use a fleet of government prodnoses to turn back medicines at the border if it fails to sign some form (which they havn't even decided exists or not yet)?

Seems like complete madness to me.

And a very weird attitude in the European Union, where people seem to think unless the government has a law permitting something it just doesn't happen.

Actually trade happens even the government is banning some trade. The consumption of the banned substance skyrockets and crime flourishes: Prohibition. The same with drugs.

But this is not the topic of the thread. ;)
