Brexit Blog: Technical Notices

Author: Chloe Smith, Updated: 25 September 2018 14:54

Many constituents continue to get in touch with me to share their views on Brexit. As your constituency MP, I welcome hearing views from all my constituents on this significant milestone in Britain’s history and I wanted to give you all a quick update on the latest Brexit information.


In August, you will have seen the Brexit Secretary deliver a speech outlining the Government’s preparation in the event of a “no deal” Brexit scenario and the Government published the first in a series of technical notices advising consumers and businesses what to expect should we leave the EU with no deal.


This week the Government are publishing the third batch of technical notices to provide further advice to businesses and consumers, in the unlikely event we leave the EU with no deal, so people can make informed plans and preparations.


More details about these technical notices can be found at the below web address.


For two years, the Government has been implementing a significant programme of work to ensure the UK will be ready from day 1 in all scenarios.


I would again reiterate that the Government trust and expect that ‘no deal’ plans will not be required, but it is the duty of a responsible Government to continue to prepare for all scenarios. I am confident that whatever the outcome of our negotiations we can be positive about the future of Norwich and the UK as a whole.


The Brexit Secretary has confirmed to Parliament that over 80% of the withdrawal agreement has been agreed and the Government is making further progress on those outstanding separation issues. As the final stages of the Brexit process conclude, I will be continuing my work in Parliament to help deliver a Brexit which is in the best interests of Britain and Norwich.
