Operation Yellowhammer

Wednesday 18 September 2019, 17:30 - 18:30

The government has released papers setting out what could happen if the UK left the EU without a deal.

This event explored what those papers tell us about a no-deal Brexit and how the government is preparing.

Our panel included:

  • Hilary Benn MP – Chair of the Exiting the EU Committee
  • Philip Rycroft – former Permanent Secretary, Department of Exiting the EU
  • Rosamund Urwin – Senior Reporter, The Sunday Times
  • Dr Graham Gudgin – Chief Economic Adviser, Policy Exchange
  • Joe Owen – Programme Director, Institute for Government

The event was chaired by Jill Rutter, programme director at the Institute for Government. There was an opportunity for audience questions.
