Could the UK cope with a no deal Brexit?

Wednesday 3 July 2019, 09:00 - 10:00

Both candidates for Conservative Party leadership have said they would be willing to take the UK out of the EU without a deal. But there has been very little public information about how the Government plans to cope with a no deal Brexit.

At this event, our panel discussed what no deal might mean for the UK, how ‘ready’ both government and business will be for no deal in October, and how to make best use of the next four months.

Our panel included:

  • Karen Wheeler, former Director General, Cross Government Border Delivery Group, HMRC
  • Allie Renison, Head of Europe and Trade Policy, Institute of Directors
  • Lorand Bartels, Senior Counsel, Linklaters.

The discussion was chaired by Joe Owen, Programme Director at the Institute for Government. There was an opportunity for audience questions.
