A “no deal” Brexit requires legislation to ensure that the UK has measures to replace EU legislation that no longer applies. Some of the primary laws needed for facilitation have been passed (for example.

In June 2017, a parliamentary inquiry concluded that “the possibility of a no deal was real enough to justify its planning. The government did not provide evidence, either for this investigation or for its White Paper, that it “did not reach an agreement” to obtain the level of consideration it deserves or that it was considering serious contingency planning. This is all the more urgent if the government is serious about saying it would turn away from a “bad” agreement.  The second phase, which covers relations between the EU-27 and the UK after Brexit, is expected to begin “as soon as the European Council decides that sufficient progress has been made in the first phase to reach a satisfactory agreement on the modalities of an orderly withdrawal.”  The first opportunity for this decision was taken on 19 October 2017 at a summit of EU heads of state and government.

From tomorrow, attention will be focused on negotiations on the future trade agreement, which will apply from the end of the transition period between the UK and the EU, provided, of course, that it is possible for both sides to agree on conditions.
